Through antique stores and trinket shops he scoured for charms to fit on an old, tarnished silver bracelet; bobbles that captured stories from her childhood. As the tales unfolded the memories grew darker and more unpleasant, until it became clear that Devon wasn’t playing a love song from father to daughter, but rather a song of regret and redemption.
