The Door That Shouldn't Have Been There by Corinna Edwards-Colledge | ebook
"Corinna beautifully balances the universal and particular in this individual story of loss and everyday grief. The imagery is poetic and layered and draws the reader forward, running to catch their breath."
Henry Normal, multi award-winning writer, producer and broadcaster
Once upon a time, a husband watches as his wife opens a Door. He tries to follow her, waking instead to find his beloved dead beside him.
Days later, The Door appears again. He doesn’t know where it will take him. All he knows is that he’s desperate to see his wife again.
This is a story about a husband’s sorrow, and where it takes him.
This is a story about grief.
This is a story about what we do when faced with the loss of those we love.
Stepping between the fantastical and the real, this richly illustrated modern fairy tale crystalises hope and mourning into a reflection on life itself.
