'To be given a glimpse now was a bitter miracle, a ghostly caress that left more regret than solace.'

One minute you have a family, and the next you do not. It's too awful to even contemplate. In the aftermath, you are left to make some sort of peace with mistakes made, things taken for granted, words left unsaid. So much rides on seemingly unimportant decisions made each day, yet the result of just one of them can impact the rest of your life.

As always, human nature's fascination with placing blame borders on obsession. Wasting time wishing that things are different from what they are, and how much things change when looked at with older eyes.

Thought provoking, the story is weighing heavily on me, even finished. Glad I read it, but very ready to go on to something else.
