An Empty Nest by Sandy Day
Her kids are gone.
Her husband is gone.
She is slammed by an unexpected grief after her daughter moves out. This is why, relocating from her small messy apartment in the city sounds like a reasonable thing to do.
But can living with her sisters at the cottage be a good idea?
As she grapples with encroaching woodland creatures, one middle-aged woman encounters ghosts from her past including alcoholism, sibling abuse, and her father’s death.
Amid a summer of thunderstorms, noisy cottage renters, and the clamor of birdsong, can a reckoning with her sisters unfold?
You’ll love this poignant short read because it will make you laugh and it will make you cry as it fearlessly portrays life beyond the empty nest.
