Does slavery still exist in the UK? How do people struggling to make ends meet put food on the table and shoes on their childrens' feet? How far would you go?
An award winning short story. "Sub-Prime" is the first in Emma Calin's anthology "The Love in a Hopeless Place Collection".
Two powerless beings are swept together in a transient struggle for survival. Could the human spirit transcend the brutality and indifference of their brief experience before they are once again swept helplessly apart?
Far more than a love story - this is a story about love. Sub-Prime: a short story of our times.
'Sub-Prime is not a fun tale, but it's truth, and truth, even well stated, is stark, in-your-face, and eye opening'
'Although the story is short, it is well-written, quite intense and very realistic'
'Powerful condensed full-flavoured shot of reality'
The first story in the "Love in a Hopeless Place Collection", you can read it as a stand-alone title, or as part of the 5-part boxed-set of novelettes and short stories, including "The Chosen", "Angela", "Escape to Love" and "Love in a Hopeless Place".

I found this to be an interesting, quick read. It shows the brutal reality Mike faces when he can't find work. Life is harsh and he does what he has to. This was different then most books I read but I found it to be a good read.
