Distant Relations by Kenneth Radu
Winner of The QSPELL Prize for Fiction in 1989
Distant Relations is the story of Vera, an elderly woman, as she waits for her children to arrive for a family reunion. She is plagued by a bad heart and disturbing memories. During her weak spells, she recalls past events of her life, a litany of tragedies: brutal accidents, loss of both parents, cruel treatment at the hands of her aunt, an unhappy marriage, poverty, loss of a lover, children she hardly knows. – Donna Doyle
