Description

A lonely widower rents a woman to keep him company over the holidays. The young wife of a considerably older man steps off their train for just a moment and never returns. A woman and her withdrawn grandchild try to bridge the generations and loneliness keeping them apart. In these tales and others in "The Christmas Wife," Helen Norris celebrates the heart's triumph over the tragic losses and nameless longings of our common existence.show more
