These short stories are meant to reflect issues affecting the lives of many in today’s society. Most of them have unexpected endings that, though sometimes shocking, are occasionally the results of the situations depicted. Stories such as “Retribution,” which focuses on elder abuse; “Resolution,” which examines elder care issues; “Revenge,” which explores the effects of sexual abuse; “Pain,” which examines possible effects of corporal punishment, and “Dreamer,” which pinpoints issues with elder gambling—delve deep within the characters’ consciousness to discover sources of pain. The stories should not only start a dialog about these issues but also help readers to examine solutions to them.
