ABOUT THIS SHORT STORY


Bernadine’s mother, Mama Ondine, is a diva - the premier diva of New York, and possibly the whole of the world. Her huge voice always seemed to reach to infinity, mesmerizing the entire audience, but especially rising up to Bernardine to rip out her heart.

Bernadine was just the opposite. Unattractive, awkward, and sickly - and she was especially sick right before Mama Ondine gave a big performance.

One day the province of British Columbia invited the diva to go to Victoria and sing for a Federal Gala. Three days on the far western coast of Canada. The pull of the ocean was irresistible to Bernadine and she talked Mama into the trip even though she had to lie to do so. Would it be a deadly choice for her or for Mama Ondine?
