In a Dark Wood: What Dante Taught Me about Grief, Healing, and the Mysteries of Love by Joseph Luzzi p. 100

"Every night I went to sleep terrified of dreaming about Katherine. There was a sound in the room next to mine, a rhythmic breath as steady as the forward movement of time."

The breath in the next room is his infant daughter, who he's really neglecting and letting his mother spoil. I don't blame him for trying to not dream about his now-dead wife, though.

I can't even imagine what it would be like to lose my spouse. How awful. I am glad his daughter is being cared for, even if not by him necessarily. This sounds like it could be a good and insightful book.
