Kim Fairley, Writer

World Enough And Time

When I was twenty-five, newly married to Vern, a man thirty-two years older, and had just learned I was pregnant with my first child, the widow of my husband’s dear friend called from 800 miles away to ask if we would take her eleven-year-old son for two weeks.

Dealing with the grief of losing his own son and facing his own mortality, Vern agreed to take the boy into our home.

“World Enough and Time” is about the choices we make: should we support our spouse or protect our child? It is about the ghosts of the past and what happens when a new relationship has to confront those ghosts and find new ways to nurture the relationship.
