Author Becky Aikman on Her Book, Saturday Night Widows
Six marriages, six heartbreaks, one shared beginning.
In her forties—a widow, too young, too modern to accept the role—Becky Aikman struggled to make sense of her place in an altered world. In this transcendent and infectiously wise memoir, Saturday Night Widows, she explores surprising new discoveries about how people experience grief and transcend loss and, following her own remarriage, forms a group with five other young widows to test these unconventional ideas. Together, these friends summon the humor, resilience, and striving spirit essential for anyone overcoming adversity.
