Realities: A young widow writes to her husband
"The book is by turns humorous, witty, moving, upbeat. Jenny is a warm, sensitive heroine. It’s a pleasure to watch her and a privilege to eavesdrop on her thoughts. Highly recommended…" LIBRARY JOURNAL
“She made me see things I hadn't thought about before. The end of this novel is deeply moving. It is a journey of healing that's beautifully written. Don't miss it!” A. Hayes
Jenny and Richard Weaver were going to live happily ever after. Then Richard took his life.
A year after Richard's death Jenny impulsively moves from the Northeast to California with their two young children, hoping for a fresh start. The children adjust to the move, but she can’t seem to find her way.
In a moment of deep frustration and loneliness, Jenny begins writing to Richard, sharing her most intimate thoughts. She writes about her daily life—bullying at work, the difficulties of being a single parent, and after some hesitation, a new romance.
Jenny also writes about the past. She looks back at their marriage and family life, and begins to see how it went wrong. As she gets closer to the truth and the past becomes threatening, she decides not to write to him anymore. But she finds it impossible to stop. The answer to their children's questions about how-and-why their daddy died is in the past, and she can't hide from the truth forever.
In this intimate, compelling novel, a young widow discovers her own strength and identity after the devastating loss of her husband. Realities was a selection of the Swedish Book-of-the-Month Club.
