Odes to Dead Spouses
a book list by Peter, the avid reader who runs Flashlight Worthy
Sometimes you notice a quiet little theme running through the books you've read of late. For whatever reason, in the last few years I've read three books that are all memoirs of a spouse grieving the loss and/or celebrating the life of a recently departed husband or wife.
All of these books are extremely short, incredibly touching, and not recommended as airplane reading... unless you enjoy having strangers wonder why you're crying over a book.
