The Deep

by Mary Swan

If you are a newcomer to short stories try this collection. The first story is almost a novella, a strange elegiac tale of twin sisters during the Great War. The others follow on with quiet unfolding of loves and passions in extreme times.


And then there was a moment of panic. Cold, as if the water itself had chilled and darkened, inexplicable. We kicked to the surface, flailed our way to the bank where Hugh lounged, felt the sun begin to warm us again, our racing hearts slow down. We didn't speak of it.
