Behind Laws Lies Plenty
Markus Cormac by Chol-wdwuok

As spring continues to summer, Dolores and Markus confront new life in the Munro’s slum. And worse, when Cormac dies, Dolores turns to drinking and Markus drops from school. Life on the street takes Markus to robbery and finally, into drug syndicate. Motherhood takes Dolores to killing men she once took the likings and ends up drowned in Altantic Ocean.

"Compelling story of mixed motherhood and infertility that hurts, much less kills,"
