A Dark Oval StoneLarge Print - 2007
Haunted by a childhood shaped by the death of one brother in Vietnam and another in an elementary school fire, Miriam Kovatch is accustomed to living under the shadow of grief. Her deceased mother, devoutly religious and expert at sodden prayers, taught Miriam to be on the alert for whatever tragedy was destined to be lurking around the corner. When Miriam's husband dies suddenly, confirming her mother's powerful lessons, she is forced to embark on an enlightening journey of self-discovery that shakes the foundations of her own faith and ultimately contradicts everything she once believed about her family and herself. Sustained by the unexpected friendship of a remarkable stranger, Miriam begins the painful process of embracing all that life has to offer.
