At The Left Hand
At the Left Hand takes us to a remote corner of the earth that’s been forsaken by time. Even though her parents are malicious in their treatment of her, little Lucia’s spirit is unstoppable. The story explores the strength Lucia takes from the love she feels for her younger sister, Teresa. After Lucia is raped by a cousin, she is cast out by her parents.
Teresa’s love for her sister does not waver. A greater misfortune that befalls Lucia as the story develops, compels us to follow the experience of the metamorphosis in Lucia’s spirit, as she is cut away from her sister’s love, and moved irreparably far from self.
