    Published July 2021

    Pru’s husband has walked out, leaving her alone to contemplate her future.

    She’s missing not so much him, but the life they once had – picnicking on the beach with small children, laughing together, nestling up like spoons in the cutlery drawer as they sleep. Now there’s just a dip on one side of the bed and no-one to fill it. In a daze, Pru goes off to a friend’s funeral.

    Usual old hymns, words of praise and a eulogy but… it doesn’t sound like the friend Pru knew. And it isn’t. She’s gone to the wrong service.

    Everyone was very welcoming, it was – oddly – a laugh, and more excitement than she’s had for ages. So she buys a little black dress in a charity shop and thinks, now I’m all set, why not go to another? I mean, people don’t want to make a scene at a funeral, do they? No-one will challenge her – and what harm can it do?
