The Elijah Project - a short story

During my years in Fiji I had many fascinating experiences and gained vast amounts of material for both fiction and non-fiction writing. My latest story published on the Cafe Lit website was inspired by things I saw in Fiji. The story is fictional, and Fijians do not have a culture of throwing family members out of their homes, but the character Elijah is loosely based on a real person.

  1. Enjoyed reading your story :)

  2. That was a story with a very strong moral - well done.

    1. Thank you, Lizy - I've seen some sad cases of misguided 'charity' and although this story is fictional, it expresses some of the frustration I felt when I lived in Fiji.
