A Year of Days, Paperback / softback Book

A Year of Days Paperback / softback

Part of the Robert Kroetsch Series series


"As soon as she was gone from this earth, I felt an overwhelming need for more of her.

I had to find her again. But how do you find someone after they're gone for good?" After her mother succumbed to a rare form of dementia, Myrl Coulter turned the eulogy she had written for the funeral into a series of meditations on absence.

The result is fifteen personal narrative essays that move through the vacations, holidays, special occasions, and ordinary days each year brings.

Coulter reaches for the mother who is gone, yet ever-present, no matter where she is or what she is doing.

In every captivating detail of Coulter's world, A Year of Days offers readers an intimate odyssey of experience and catharsis.
