Summary
When Dorothy came back from the dead, Aaron noticed that some people simply ignored the fact; some seemed to have forgotten she'd died in the first place; and others just walked straight on by. The accident that killed Dorothy - involving an oak tree, a sun porch and some elusive biscuits - leaves Aaron bereft and the house a wreck
Summary
Sharing a happy marriage with the plain and outspoken Dorothy, Aaron, a physically disabled man who spent his youth avoiding a controlling sister, is devastated by his wife's sudden death and moves through the grieving process with the help of her apparition.
