Kenneth Weeneabout this book: Widow's Walk is about the hardship of living. It's a tear-jerker. It is also a book about religion and spirituality, about love and sexuality.
I set out to write a novel that would address the age old question: "How could God allow suffering in the world?" And a second question: "How did faith impact the way a person dealt with suffering?"
Mary Flanagan is certainly a woman of faith. Indeed, she had at one time hoped to become a nun. But such women are pushed and pulled by the forces of the world, and she ended up married to a Boston bus driver. A marriage neither of great romance nor unhappiness.
After her husband's sudden death, Mary faces live with her two adult children, one her estranged daughter Kathleen and the other her quadriplegic son, Sean. Mary would have gone on in quiet faith and suffering, offering her pain up to God; but Sean decides to go for rehabilitation.
Mary sets out to find herself with some wonderful results, but the course of life doesn't run smooth. In the end, we are left to still puzzle the will of God and the sadness that the best of people often have to face.
