Life Sentence and The Blue Cross

Two New Caledonian short stories

It's mid-twentieth century when two New Caledonian men contract leprosy and reflect on what they call their 'life sentence', but when a cure is discovered they realise it wasn't the end of life after all.

And in today's New Caledonia, an indigenous woman tolerates her alcoholic husband until his behaviour affects their child. She considers leaving but a charity, the Blue Cross, offers to help him.
