Life's Little Difficulties
This is the final work in the trilogy begun by Just Fine and A Fine Passage.
Since the birth of their son Etienne, Carmen has been working as a waitress while Terry takes care of the baby. He has also been reading every book he can find about the Yi Jing, and consulting his oracle daily. The arrival of Etienne and Ludmilla Zablonski supplies unexpected and welcome inspiration.
But Terry and Carmen's life together is tinged with anxiety, and important questions about their future arise. "I've decided to love you till the day I die," Terry writes in a note to Carmen -- but is it really possible to decide to love someone?
