George Morey would do anything to save his wife from certain death and has tried every treatment known, from chemical to homeopathic to prayer - all to no avail.
So when the local witch requests unique ingredients from the town's gravedigger, George complies without question - willing to sacrifice his own past to secure a future with the woman he loves...more than life itself.
A great novella with a excellent narrative descriptions, clear characters and a nice subtle twist. Nicely somewhere between sci-fi and character study. I got a surprisingly clear feeling for the life of this gravedigger from the language, and the reader was excellent in conveying the images with patience and heart. A great way to spend a short drive!
