WILLOW CABIN

This records, backwards and forwards, the itinerant thoughts or rather feelings in the head of Katie, a nurse who's seen lots of suffering in a home for the old (a colostomy here, an amputee there) but still has a good deal left over for herself. Since following the death of her father, a long and painful business, she's devoted the rest of her emotional life to Ben, a doctor, married to a woman who has one man after another. Still Ben keeps returning to her in between his times with Katie at their willow cabin until one day she hears he's moving away for good and she decides to keep him ""safe"" with her, forever. Like Love Story, there's no gainsaying certain women might read it for the vulnerable trash that it is -- lots of prayers, lots of tears, and lots of consciousness raising from the heart up and the waist down.
