I’m cold and alone and I’m dead. There’s no air in my lungs. My chest is as cold and hollow as a cave on a snow-capped mountain side. My heart no longer beats there. Frigid winds whistle through my ribs and the sadness inside me weeps like my favorite tree.
Days ago, I met with death face to face. The mirror, our meeting place. My two darkened green eyes stared deeply into hers. I tilted my head to the side. She did too.
“It’s time,” I whispered.
“It’s time,” she whispered.
And with that I turned away from her, the woman in the mirror who knew all of my secrets and all of my pain. I walked away from her and yet we’d never been closer than we were in that moment. The inner struggle was over. No more arguing with the woman in the mirror. No more arguing with myself. The choice was made. She was the victor. Or was I?
That was the day Riah Winter died.
I was lucky enough to be able to ask Kathryn a few questions about LWIW.
ARABB: How different would you say that LWIW is than your previous novels?
Kathryn: It is different in that it’s not a romance novel. It deals with marital issues and we see some romance but it’s not the driving force of the story.
ARABB: Therapy absolutely gutted me after reading it, but the story hasn’t left my heart. I feel like this novel is going to bring out something different in all of us, but will have a message that will stay with us long after we finish the last page. Would that be a safe assumption?
ARABB: Are you worried about the reception of this novel? You say that it isn’t a romance novel, which leads me to believe there will be no HEA.
Kathryn: I can’t say much about the ending. I will say that the ending is beautiful in its own way. That’s as much as I can say.
ARABB: Is this novel based on personal experiences?
Kathryn: I have battled depression most of my adult life. So, I guess that would be a yes.
Thank you so much to Kathryn Perez for answering my questions!!
