Negative Space
By Betsy Miller

This is a short story, about seven pages in all, about a woman who has recently suffered a miscarriage and her struggle with that fact.
The story was well written, and very beautiful I can only imagine the pain that Michelle Green was going through. I should point this out before I continue I don’t have children but I am married. When the main character, Michelle, started talking about, in essence, how she and her husband where not whole just the two of them it irri
Wow! This is stark, emotional, gut-wrenching and yet, strangely hopeful at the same time.

I didn't know what to expect from Betsy this time, but boy did she deliver! This packed an emotional sucker punch about a subject, thankfully I haven't experienced personally, but a close friend has. It helped me to understand, just a little more what that must have felt like.

Truly, hauntingly beautiful and sad!
