The widow also has deepness to her. She draws you in and as this happens, you feel her arms encircling you, comforting you just as a grandmother would. However, you can feel through this wisdom a sadness. Maybe it is her desire to pass down her life, strength, and memories... or maybe it is a slight weakness knowing her life is coming to the end.
Gabriela and the Widow is graphic and at times explicit language is used in its description of what life is for these characters. Jack Remick’s words forces the reader to keep turning the pages. The plot is complex and filled with sadness, regret, and a level of mystery and intrigue.
