After a fatal accident takes place in their backyard, Susan and Brian decide to try, one last time, to start a family. Against the backdrop of destruction of the natural world, the menace of high-voltage transformers, and unsettling signs and omens, their efforts meet a tragic end. Thirty years later, their daughter must come to terms with the consequences—deciding who she really is and how she wants to carry forward her family’s dreams and memories. This deeply moving and elegantly written short story paints a vivid portrait of a family haunted by loss and shaped by grief.
