When one half of an older couple passes away, it can seem as though the half that's left just exists until their time also comes. Sometimes though, the smallest things can make all the difference.
When one half of an older couple passes away, it can seem as though the half that's left just exists until their time also comes. Sometimes though, the smallest things can make all the difference. In this sweet short story the prose reflects the lifestyle of the main protagonist and draws the reader into his mood, while the third person view allows you to view his life as an observer. A kind and honest man, he is an endearing character explored through gentle, quiet and affecting scenes.
Readers of Peter Rake's other short stories will find a softness to this that piece not found to this extent in his other work.
