And as they grasp for hope, they sometimes make a leap into a new life.

    "A little too dark for my taste - others may enjoy"

    ***possible spoiler alert*** It is well written and well narrated, however, it was a little dark/disturbing. I stopped listening after the third story because of the subject matter (dead infants and a slaughterhouse).
