    Summary:

    A powerful short story collection from Cree-Métis author Lisa Bird-Wilson.

    A nitanis (daughter) invents the mother she never knew. A fourteen-year-old girl struggles to come to terms with her feelings of abandonment. A young man struggles with his Mooshum’s imprisonment in a damaged body and what it means for his own Métis identity. A department store clerk falls for a homeless man who woos her with Heart of Darkness.

    At the centre of these stories are notions of identity and belonging, and the complex relationships between children and parents, both those who are real and those who are just pretending.
