“None of us can change what has happened to us, the clawed creature said. But if we are lucky, we live. If we are lucky, we do not lose more than we can afford. Much regrows. Claws, tail, teeth, even the vaporous stuff the poets call soul. And bitter experience provides material for art. Ask a shipwreck. Ask an oyster. Content warning for fictional depictions of physical and emotional abuse, and gore. As someone who has previous trauma from abuse and painful situations this was such a devavsting and beautiful story about breaking the cycle of abuse, fighting back and creating a life you can be proud of. The ending was so beautiful it made me cry.”
