🏆 2022 BIBA® Contemporary Fiction Winner!
“Each person has a backstory. And each of their tales is being released back into the world
in the form of judgments or joys, bitterness or beauty…”
A mother, driven by tragedy to the threshold of her sanity. A husband, unable to escape his guilt after
one shameful decision. A soldier, wrestling to regain the respect of a society that left him behind.
As these and many others walk the aisles of their local supermarket, their stories gently intersect as
each hurting soul struggles to find its way in the world. Reflecting on themes like love and innocence,
brokenness and redemption, Never a Mere Mortal considers the spectrum of the human experience – in
both its beauty and its pain – as lives are shaped, one choice at a time.
