Sweet Home Synopsis

They say there's no place like home. It's where the heart is...Meet the little boy who believes in miracles. Meet the mother who loves to bring babies home from the newborn aisle of her supermarket. Meet the husband who carves a longed-for baby out of ice as a gift for his wife. Meet the widow who is reminded of romance whilst standing at the kitchen sink.

Sweet Home Press Reviews

'[Bray] explores parenthood, loss, childhood and belonging with razor-sharp prose, a killer eye for stop-you-in-your-tracks detail and a real understanding of the hidden cruelties and unexpectedly sharp comforts of family life' Jenn Ashworth, author of The Friday Gospels

'Suburbia in all its tarnished glory - Carys Bray teases at the cracks, and pulls at the loose threads dangling, in short stories that are funny sad and achingly true' Rob Shearman
