The Other Shore: Two Stories of Love and Death
by Paul Hina
In The Other Shore, Simon learns his father is dying, and he returns to his hometown for goodbyes. This visit leads to some uncomfortable truths he's spent years avoiding, but also leads him to Laura, who gives him hope for a future less damaged by the past. In From the Boathouse, John, an aged man with dementia, struggles to preserve the memories of meeting his wife before they slip away.
