‘The Red Train Car’ By Anastasia Bolinder

A young woman facing hardships and deep depression in her life from outside circumstances is led by a crow through the woods and into a grove of tree’s to a mysterious red train car that will change her life forever.
Written in a time where I sat beside my mother who was hooked up to a dialysis unit almost every day of the week, health failing for years and needing to find and outlet for my pain, depression and fear I wrote this story to give hope to others who found themselves feeling as lost as I was.
