    They were happy once and everything was perfect. A man and a woman and a little girl. Lots of money and an American dream life. Jake was an actor, Jane was a nurse, and Sara, their little girl, was nothing short of perfect. For years, they were a happy family, until reality came crashing down. 
    Jake tried his best to raise Sara after her mother left; but she was destined to fall into her mother’s footsteps and follow her way of life. 
    You never realize how much you have, until it is gone. 
    Jake tries to move on, after they left him; but finds it impossible to see the sunshine any more. 
    Listen as Jake recounts his best memories with the girls and tries his hardest to have a second chance at their life together. But is it too late, and has it been too long? 
    Others think he’s crazy for trying to relive a memory; but he has never let go of the life and love they wants shared. 
    This story speaks to anyone who has ever loved, and lost, in many different ways. 
    Are you crazy to not let go; even years later? Does Jake realize that he can never have it back, that they have left for good or will he continue to try, all while being alone? 
    Short Story Press publishes short stories written by everyday writers.

    Forever England explores Rupert Brooke’s life, from schooldays to the Great War, and in so doing builds a remarkable picture of a long-lost England and a generation’s descent into war. Brooke’s poems emerge dramatically from a tangled web of love, friendship, mental illness and politics. He reveals also the existence of a previously unrecorded love child from a South Seas romance.The WW1 legend was largely brought about by the words of one of his sonnets: ‘If I should die, think only this of me/That there’s some corner of a foreign field that is forever England.’  The poem, and all that it represented, became the focal point of a nation’s grief for its lost youth.Asked why Brooke was special, his Commander-in-Chief answered, "Is it because he was a hero? There were thousands? Is it because he looked a hero? There were a few. Is it because he had genius? There were others. But Rupert Brooke held all these three gifts of the gods in his hands.Forever England is written and narrated by Mike Read.

    Shakespeare’s tragic drama about a Roman general tested by rioting, war, rejection—and his own all-consuming anger.   Enraged by the withholding of food, the common people of the Roman Republic are rebelling against the elite. In this battle between plebeians and patricians, Caius Marcius has little patience for those he considers beneath him and his family.   After his military victory in the city of Corioli, Marcius is given the nickname Coriolanus and enters the world of politics, fiercely loyal to the state. But his continuing contempt for ordinary citizens proves to be his downfall—for after he attempts to end the democratic institution of the tribunals, he is banished.   As Coriolanus seethes in exile, his thirst for revenge will soon threaten the very republic he once served, in this classic play based on historical events in the ancient world.
