An empty nester who writes!... and reads...
I would recommend this to someone who has lost a significant other. The author has gotten shared her most honest inner feelings of suddenly finding herself in widowhood.
There are several. How she dealt with her initial sudden loss and also her trying to adjust her life with others.
The reader's performance was wonderful! I looked for more books done by her but there doesn't seem to be any at the moment. I really enjoyed her!
Absolutely not! I listened to this in the evening. It was a special treat to myself and I wanted to savour every chapter! Not a page turner mystery but a commiserating of events in my life with Ms. Oates.
Great read for me and highly recommend to those who are dealing with loss of a husband.
I am a Joyce Carol Oates fan. This book tells her own story of being widowed, the shock and grief, the acknowledgment, the beginning of moving on. It described their marriage which I found fascinating - deeply satisfying while reserved in a way. I found it deeply moving. So often grief is underplayed. This account is touching in its truth.
