Clara's My Name
|Author: ||Dorothy Richardson|
"Clara, a resident of the Gateway Retirement Home,
thinks her name is a misnomer, for surely her life has
been the opposite of "illustrious" or "bright." Yet
thanks to friends – pun-loving and poetry-quoting
Amelia in particular – Clara's light doesn't stay
hidden under a bushel.
A lively mystery shimmers on the surface: Who knocks
late on Clara's door? Another night visitor follows,
foreshadowed in a celebrated Whitman poem."
