A Fugitive Green podcast series
This episode, “Forgiveness,” centers around Minnie learning the truths about her mother. It’s a painful and sad story of how her mother came to be sequestered under the care of a family in the country. She learns the meaning of the hours and prays alongside her mother. Minnie shows utmost grace and love toward her mother, even knwoing she can never have the one thing she hoped to gain, the assurity of her mother’s love. With the wisdom and forbearance of a much older woman, Minnie extends her forgiveness before she leaves that day.
Hal must excise his own demons. He must begin to heal and this means going back to normal behaviors, such as sleeping in a bed, at night. He’s takes stock of his home, of the fourteen rooms he has refused to sleep in during the night hours. He recalls staying up all night since Esme’s death, either in the library reading or walking in Hyde Park, even sharing time with the homeless by their fires. He collects himself and with determination, enters Esme’s chamber. He puts on the perfume he had made for her. This springs her to life inside the room. It is the two of them together. He weeps. He grieves. He asks her forgiveness. He sleeps.
