Summary
After middle-aged Aaron loses his wife Dorothy to an accident involving a fallen tree, he's heartbroken and upended. Crippled as a child, he's spent his life pushing pity away, so finds it difficult to mourn. When, however, Dorothy starts appearing to him, Aaron is able to revisit their relationship and begin to heal.
Critique
Tyler's humor and skill in dissecting domestic life continue to shine. Not a saccharine, but a sensitive look at recovering from loss. Recommended.
