Driving Under Water

An Extract from “The Sensory Garden.”

“Helen heard herself scream as the wave of water hit the windshield. She thought about that woman, all those years ago, who had drowned at Chappaquiddick.

Trapped inside the car, with no way to escape the crush of water flooding in, the young woman had drowned. Helen had always thought it must have been a horrible way to die; terrified, cold and abandoned.”
