An Old Secret

Title: An Old Secret

Creator: Leslie McCaddon

Category: Time

Creator Commentary:

When we are children we assume we know all there is to know about our parents. There is a certain rite of passage as we start to see our parents as whole and separate human beings with lives, and even secrets, we know nothing about. This piece of flash fiction is about a young girl discovering her mother may not have been her father’s first love.
