Title: Angels Wear Orchids: A compilation of poetry and short stories
Series: Collections of Poetry & Short Stories
Diverse and eccentric, Angels Wear Orchids is the second compilation of poetry and stories from award-winning author, E. Tara Scurry.
Beginning with the authors trademark distinctive prose, the first section of the book includes song lyrics and poetry. The second part includes five stories.
“The Cleaning Lady” follows a Vietnamese immigrant baited into a human trafficking ring when she arrives to interview as a housekeeper. She uses her creativity and courage to stay alive and plan her escape.
In “Three Leaf Clover” a workaholic black woman allows the two men she’s dating to care for her cats when her boss unexpectedly sends her out of the country for work. Leery and resentful of each other, they eventually find more satisfying things to do with each other than share pet-sitting duties. When tragedy strikes this devoted threesome, a silver lining emerges.
“Pimp My Wheelchair” features a conceited wheelchair bound senior citizen and his clique of elderly and disabled friends who terrorize the patrons of Union Station in Washington DC.
“Tomorrow We Die” follows two comrades in arms as they make the most of their lives before facing one more excruciating battle against an opposing army.
In the title story “Angels Wear Orchids”, the lead singer of a Neo-goth rock band falls in love with his sassy and hardworking personal assistant, to everyone’s dismay, including hers. Being an interracial couple is the least of their differences: he’s into scandalous erotic bondage and she wants nothing to do with it. He wants all of her attention and she needs to take care of her family who sacrificed everything to support her success. She believes in what’s Right and he believes in Right Now. Is their relationship worth the effort? Will their feelings leave them no choice but to give in to each other, despite the odds?
