Table of Contents

The story "Inferno of Silence" was emotional reality at its best, with a marriage that is not at all what one spouse thought it would be and the nightmare that follows. Each story is gritty, authentic, and captures the reader with the undeniable struggles in an adult world. For Akinyemi, moving from poetry to short stories appears seamless. Seriously good stories for thoughtful readers! - Julia Walker
