Weathered Blossom, by Wan-Suh Park
A 60-year-old widow finds companionship with an eligible widower, and until her daughter and his daughter-in-law meddle in their relationship, she begins to rediscover feelings from youth. This famed Korean short story writer weaves a realization about love and passion into a simple yet compelling and beautifully rendered narrative. Short read, detailed and uniquely true points of view from the perspective of age.
