‘One Day’ – Length 4:09

Tania puts on a brave face but being a single mum, life is not as chirpy as it could be. An AVO is being violated. She needs to move fast but finding somewhere to rent near her son’s school with benefits of just $35 a day is pretty near impossible.

Music keeps Tania’s spirits high. She sings several haunting versions of Amazing Grace through this series.

‘In a child’s eyes, a mother is a goddess. She can be glorious or terrible, benevolent or filled with wrath, but she commands love either way. I am convinced that this is the greatest power in the universe.’

N.K. Jemisin, Author The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms
