Past Forward- A Serial Novel: Episode 5 is bittersweet. This week my oldest uncle died this week, so I was dealing with the grief of his death. The impact of Willow hitting the depression state of grieving had greater impact on me.
People rallied around Willow just like all of my extended family. This episode was strangely surreal when I read it. Willow’s drama in this episode was a comfort more than entertainment. It let me escape the pain and drama.
It helped because, not only was she starting to grieve but she was physically not at her best. It made her more vulnerable than I think she’s ever been in her life. This reliance on other people is the catalyst for this most unusual woman by today’s standards to begin the grieving process.
I give Past Forward- A Serial Novel: Episode 5 4 out 5.
