A story of love, loss and redemption.
morrina flowed from the high ground through the vast empty plains carrying in its clear waters the echo of something ancient and all but forgotten.
This story is in three parts, told from the perspective of each of the main characters.
Their experiences are familiar, lived in, perhaps new, perhaps yellowed and faded with age but still perfect in the minds of the haunted. I was inspired to write the story after reading an article in the newspaper about a local girl. Her photograph showed her in her school uniform, her hair blonde and her face pretty with youth. I thought that meant something. The feeling stayed with me past summer, and I began writing Morrina, thinking it was about one thing when it wasn't. Morrina is a story as much hers, theirs—people whose lives cut through the night and illuminate the darkness with a fleeting brilliance.
