It is Christmas Eve and in Acacia Avenue the lights are on, big style – flashing lights on every house – except at number 26 where Brian sits in darkness waiting for his daughter Carol to come home. This will be the first Christmas they will have spent together since Edna died.
The heart warming tale of a father, a daughter, a pair of ice skates and a set of flashing lights.
This story is the first of a series of ‘Entertainments’: too long for a short story, too short for a novel or novella. It is a story that can be read in one go – in an evening, in an afternoon, on the train, on the plane, wherever, whenever.
