“Grief, guilt, loneliness, longing, denial, anger, growth, mistakes, love, and hope: all are part of Vicki Salloum’s moving and honest novel about the death of a husband after serious, prolonged illness. In it, the words are directed to the narrator’s deceased husband. That can be a challenge. And it works. It is a moving and honest book that makes very immediate the feelings of loss and disbelief when you lose the one you love. At the same time, it is a story of hope. Arabella, the narrator, has a rocky path. But it leads to remembering love with gratitude, along with sorrow. And it leads to learning to live with –not just survive—loss.”
