The Widow’s Web is a story that carries several messages. Love is not diminished by wealth, nor is it protected. The “house gift” was written to demonstrate parental love that carries no price tag. Doug Harrison's presentation of the gift was written with personal empathy. The story also reminds us that while we may plan our futures, destiny often intervenes and takes us to “…a new path where the sun has not traveled, but where there can be comfort in the far off sounds of a bird singing to the forest.” Andrea's voyage to a far off land was as much of a surprise to her as it is to the reader!
