Two novellas about the deep connections we forge with the people we love, and the pain of breaking those connections. In Honour, Kathleen and Frank are amicably separated, but when Frank finds a new partner and wants a divorce, Kathleen is hurt. And Flo can't understand why they all can't live together. In Other People's Children, Ruth and Scotty live in a big share house that's breaking up. Scotty is trying to hold on, but now the bitterness has crept in and their friendship is broken. Ruth is ready to move on - and she'll take her kids with her.
