This is a short thought piece on a woman coping with life following the death of her husband. The protagonist, Netty, tells us about her dreams and the challenges of coping with living a life not full. She tells her story in the imagery of her own fall and recovery, through dreams and conversations.
In the January 2013 issue of The Montreal Review, Cherry Hill author Stefanie Levine Cohen weaves a challenging story that includes a wonderful passage on how we mark time as grand parents as opposed to parents.
“We were so grateful to see them born, to see them play and run. But they grew strong as we grew weak. They learned things we didn’t even know existed.”
