A Matter of Time/A New Beginning (Storycuts)


Formats & editions


Two short stories: a new start in a strange city; sometimes the new start you need in life can be closer than you think...

In 'A Matter of Time', Martin has inherited a house from his late aunt in New York, and his girlfriend Linda has moved over there with him. She finds herself feeling very lost, though, and wondering why she is there. She loves Martin, but will her new surroundings ever feel like home?

In 'A New Beginning', Primrose is becoming bored of the tedium of farm life. She knows she will miss it - the farm and its surrounding hills and river have been her home for the past twenty-four years. But she is convinced that the bright lights and buzz of London is what she needs now for her new start in life. But a new friendship in the Yorkshire Dales forces her to reconsider whether a new beginning really means moving away.

Part of the Storycuts series, these two short stories were previously published in the collection Summer Promise and Other Stories.
