Louise has to suffer the hand of her abusive father on a daily basis just for making simple mistakes, while her mother just looks on helplessly, living in denial. But, for just a few precious moments a day, Louise manages to escape her world by reading the diary of her late and brave grandmother, this gives her hope. Then, one day, after a chance meeting, she meets Mr Beautiful and falls in love instantly. She begins to daydream about this mystery man more and more. The question is, will these daydreams one day become a reality?

Inventive, outlandish, and tender fairy tales from a bestselling author The fantastic has always been at the edges of Heather O'Neill's work. In her bestselling novels Lullabies for Little Criminals and The Girl Who Was Saturday Night, she transformed the shabbiest streets of Montreal with her beautiful, freewheeling metaphors. She described the smallest of things-a stray cat or a second-hand coat-with an intensity that made them otherworldly. In Daydreams of Angels, O'Neill's first collection of short stories, she gives free reign to her imaginative gifts. In 'The Ugly Ducklings,' generations of Nureyev clones live out their lives in a grand Soviet experiment. In 'Dear Piglet,' a teenaged cult follower writes a letter to explain the motivation behind her crime. And in another tale, a grandmother reveals where babies come from: the beach, where young mothers-to-be hunt for infants in the surf. Each of these beguiling stories twists the beloved narratives of childhood-fairy tales, storybooks, Bible stories-to uncover the deepest truths of family life.
