John Evans was hiking in Romania with his wife, Katie, when they got separated. When he found her, Katie was being attacked by a brown bear. Evans was a witness to her death.
Evans writes about his relationship with Katie, his guilt about surviving, and his grief that follows.
Tragic and heartbreaking, but beautifully written. This was even more touching to me as one of my friends, unfortunately and very sadly, is a new widower, and I thought about him a lot while I read this book.
