Sweets from Strangers
In search of adventure

Orphans were far more likely to have adventures. And although I did love my parents, they were a hindrance. I wanted to be free from piano practice and Sunday School. So I must appear to be alone in the world, like Jane Eyre. I chose Marianne Fairfax as my new name as it was far less mundane than Linda.

But a trip to the beach turns out to be a stark warning. Never take sweets from strangers – they may be disguised as almond tarts and heart shaped crockery, but the danger remains the same.

Another great short story from Barbara Jennings. I really enjoyed it.
