Now, could I be so daring as to put a career before my children? The key to a happy life is to hold realistic expectations. But what if the pursuit of happiness led you to reject the values and customs of your community? Would you seek a new life in a foreign country, in the face of cultural resistance, in order to achieve your goals? The Tale of a Widow's Anguish follows twenty years in the life of a woman who does just that, leaving Guyana to pursue a career in nursing on Britain. Her journey is not an easy one; the obstacles and sacrifices are many. But the alternatives, a loveless marriage and unfulfilled dreams, are unbearable.
