After sitting in a shoe box inside the closet with four others for almost twenty years, I finally have the courage to publish the second installment in a pentalogy of autobiographical stories about a need and desire so strong it transcends time and death.
What are you prepared to give up for freedom? How far are you willing to go to follow your heart's desire? Would you put everything on the line for something that cannot last?
