On one dark and stormy night in the Silver Retirement Home, five elderly ladies are trading stories of their remarkable lives. With the flood waters rising, the ladies are faced with the realisation that help isn’t coming. With no rescue in sight, they are going to have to sort it themselves – luckily, that’s exactly what they’ve been doing their entire lives!

  • Menna is the only Sin Eater in the village. She carries on the old Welsh tradition, eating the sins of the dear departed despite the bitter taste left in her mouth. Thoughtful, moving and darkly humorous new writing from Lissa Berry.
