Above the town, on the hill brow, the stone angel used to stand.
I wonder if she stands there yet... Hagar Shipley - an irascible, independent nonagenarian - has lived a quiet life full of rage.
As she approaches her death, she retreats from the squabbling of her son and his wife to reflect on her past - her ill-advised marriage, her two sons, the harshness of farm life on the prairie, her own failures and the betrayals and failures of others.
