Publisher's Summary

Short Story Press Presents: "A Winters Morning", by Katelynd Jarvis.

"A Winters Morning" takes a close look at a young woman who is dealing with the residual affects of her abusive husband. 

  • It gives a window into the emotional battle between still being in love with her husband and hating him.
  • The story is told in a series of flashbacks. Some throw the listener directly into the moments, others are brief past-tense recollections.
  • Told in first person, it allows the listener a window into the protagonist's direct thoughts and emotions, allowing them to get lost in the moment with her instead of being on the outside looking in.
  • The story is told in a fluid time line in the span of a morning on what would have been her fourth wedding anniversary.
  • It limits the characters to only the protagonist and her husband in the past tense.

The story is not broken down into sections, rather it is told through flashbacks, allowing for a fluid time line but keeping the listener engaged without the abrupt ending or beginning of a section. This throws the listener into the constant emotional thralls with the protagonist.
