Mad Song (excerpt)
by William Blake
The wild winds weep,
And the night is a-cold;
Come hither, Sleep,
And my griefs unfold.
How did Andrea’s life become so hopeless and full of grief that the crying of the wind sounded like it could be the theme music for the movie of her new lot in life?
In a remote cabin on the rugged coast of British Columbia, Andrea, a pretty and vibrant young woman, seeks escape from the man she has married. He was so handsome, persuasive, and charming. He promised to love her forever–and he will–“till death do us part.”
Her friends are far away in the town she and her husband left behind. They haven’t heard from her in a long while…. No Internet, no phone, no mail. They assume she’s happy.
How were they to know? It all seemed so idyllic at first.
But then, Andrea is too remote for contact with them. Almost forgotten.
And all the while, she is fighting for her survival against huge odds.
