The Best Years of Our Lives by Hannah Stanley is both the campus and regional winner of Okanagan College’s eighth annual Three-Hour Short Story Contest. Stanley’s story is a heart-wrenching homage to the beauty of the everyday, as seen through a child’s eyes. With precise, vivid detail and a compellingly earnest narrative voice, Stanley’s writing navigates the perspective of an unreliable narrator with remarkable poise. The story deftly explores the fraught relationships between parents and children, ultimately revealing that there is wisdom and even power in innocence.
