‘Crossing the Victoria Line’

crossng-victoria-line150

In the world of fairytales, not every character has their dream ending. ‘Crossing the Victoria Line’ by Marie Gethins, a beautifully-written modern re-imagining of ‘The Little Match Girl’, reveals how an impoverished young woman, abused by her father and mournful at the loss of her mother, is as familiar a story today as it has been for centuries past. And as most of society ignores the destitute, there are those that bring a tiny glimmer of kindness into their worlds.

‘Crossing the Victoria Line’ by Marie Gethins is the fourteenth story in ‘The Forgotten and the Fantastical 3’, pub. by Mother’s Milk Books.
