There are nonetheless small joys to be discovered within the hustle and bustle. This continues into the protagonist, a service provider with a inexperienced thumb who sells salads in mugs. She’s a flower rising out of the cracks of the concrete, although issues could not keep peaceable for lengthy. Hopefully it received’t take one other three years to seek out out.
