July 20, 2019: “The Woman Who Hated Children” by James Ronald

Recommended Posts

Please join us for our next chat in  #readers_corner at 8:30 P.M. (EDST) July 20th, 2019  -- 00:30  A.M. (GMT) July 21st -- for a discussion of "The Woman Who Hated Children" by James Ronald.  This story was published in the Saturday Evening Post in 1951.  It tells a moving story of a middle-aged woman grief stricken by the death of her young son and of her loving husband's concern over her chronic depression which is plaguing their marriage.  I believe you will find the story interesting.  It may also prove interesting to discuss a few of the differences in the world of 1951 as opposed to today's.  The story mentions the polio epidemics of the mid- 20th century, a danger almost eliminated by the development of effective preventative inoculations.  (That too may provide food for thought and chat.)

The story is available on line at:  https://tinyurl.com/y4ao8zn2
