Althea’s Perspective by Nefretiti A. Morant is a novella about a mother who unknowingly tells her deepest secret to the one person she should never have told. Althea's husband passed away over 10 years ago and her memory was starting to fade. She would often confuse her son with her late husband, probably because he was a mirror image of his late father. With his mother's sense of reality turned upside down, Kenneth felt the need to check on her more and more. He cared more about her now than he did before, especially after realizing that her memory was fading fast. On the fateful morning, when Kenneth delivered her breakfast to her bedroom, she seemed to have slipped back to the time she was pregnant with him, and not knowing that she was talking to her son, she accidentally revealed a secret he was never meant to find out.

Althea’s Perspective is about caring for a mother whose memory is starting to fade. It is also about the fact that the truth always comes out. Secrets can only be kept secrets for so long, the truth has a way of coming out when you least expect it. It is about getting answers when you did not even know that there was a question to be asked. It is a good story delivered in a few words. It cuts to the chase and takes you to the heart of the story right away.
