I was very impressed with this story. The author deals with very deep emotions without proselytizing or lecturing. As a reader, I long for the darker themes, in this case regret, self-judgment, shame as a weapon. She treats her subject and her characters with respect and reserve. I am excited to read future stories in this collection dealing with women’s issues in contemporary society. I am a strong believer in the power of the pen. I believe that short, heartfelt, measured vignettes like this one contribute far more to the evolving sensibilities of reading citizens than public heated debates ever will. Thank you, Sara.
