Unraveling like a mystery novel, Kim Fairley’s memoir of her marriage to a man thirty-two-years older, who had lost his son in a gun accident, explores the taboo of wide age gap love. Soon after twenty-four-year-old Kim and fifty-six-year-old Vern marry they learn Kim is pregnant. However, their lives are turned upside down when the widow of Vern’s dear friend calls in need of a favor. She wants Vern to take her eleven-year-old son, Stanislaus, whose troubling behavior challenges Kim’s devotion, trust and the underpinnings of her marriage.The book serves as a reminder of the power of talking in coming to terms with massive grief, which has been a major theme during the coronavirus pandemic, that has plunged people into psychological distress, fatigue, occupational burnout, anxiety and depression.
