Literary Fiction with some Sexual Content
Description of book:
Mary Flanagan’s son Sean, a quadriplegic, is leaving home and seeking rehabilitation. Suddenly Mary must face her own life and find new meaning. Widow’s Walk is the story of her growth and journey of self-discovery. It is also the story of Sean’s new life and the life of Mary’s daughter Kathleen. This is a book rooted in faith, religion, and spirituality. It is also about love, sexuality, and disappointment. I hope readers will shed some tears as they get to know these characters.

Guest Blog Kenneth Weene
I set this book in my hometown of Boston because, having lived elsewhere for over 35 years, I wanted to revisit. Originally it was to be called “Mary’s Story” or possibly “A Widow’s Tale: – not very inspiring titles. When I realized that Mary and and boyfriend Arnie had to have at least one sensual and sexual encounter as part of their coming together, I asked if they’d like to take a road trip to Maine, another important site from my childhood. Both characters immediately said yes; although Mary was a bit unsure – sexual fulfillment was a new concept for her.
Arnie, being a laid-back guy drove up old Route 1; no highways for him. Passing through Newburyport, which is an old whaling town in Massachusetts and where I went to high school, they saw the wonderful old houses built by the whaling captains for their brides. Those houses typically had small walkways, widow’s walks, on the roofs so the women could watch for their husband’s ships. Mary loved those old houses; she wouldn’t stop talking about them. Finally, since they had to get on the road so Arnie could go to L.L. Bean and buy his trademark flannel shirts, I told Mary that I’d name the book for those widow’s walks if she’d get in Arnie’s Buick.
I hope you enjoy reading Mary’s story.
Happy Anniversary Kenneth & Mary!!!
