Her sister's secret

It's Pride Week.  

Communities are hopping with events to celebrate in loud, proud and colourful displays - or to celebrate in a quiet and dignified manner

In this excerpt from The Year of the Rabbit, Sera finds out that Amy and Dela plan to leave town, taking baby Harry along.  She also confronts them about their relationship.  

A community's reaction to homosexuals in 1975 would not have been as accepting as present day.  We are witnessing a balance between pride and dignity, with youth taking more leadership roles.
