Half of Every Couple
with Diane O'Brien
Join Maine author, Diane O'Brien as she talks about her book, Half of Every Couple, which takes the reader through the year following the death of her husband, ending their nearly fifty year marriage. Weekly entries follow her journey of grief from the numbness of the first weeks to a gradual awakening to the possibilities that lay ahead. With a 150 year old farmhouse and barn, a flock of laying hens, a dog and six grandchildren within a mile or two there are few quiet moments. The paradox of grieving amidst the renewal of life all around her is a central theme of Half of Every Couple. That this unfolds in the context of a coastal Maine town, where everyone knows someone has died when the dooryard’s full of cars, makes it all the more interesting.
