Field of Memories #Six-Sentence Thursday

My late husband Bill was a fan of the Colorado Rockies baseball team, even when they weren’t doing well. I don’t know if he ever attended a game, but he enjoyed listening on the radio, no doubt wishing he could be center field, but because of his limited vision as a child, playing baseball was out of the question.

After he passed, I had an opportunity to attend a game with relatives at Coors Field in Denver. Because I’d forgotten to pack a portable radio in order to hear the play-by-play, and since my own vision was limited, I didn’t always know what was going on, but as I sat in the stands, I felt close to Bill. If he were still alive, he would have been in the nursing home, and he would have probably called me every so often, and as I always did, I would have commiserated with him when the Rockies lost that game. To learn more about me and Bill, you can read My Ideal Partner: How I Met, Married, and Cared for the Man I Loved Despite Debilitating Odds.

When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.

Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.
