Gabriela and The Widow
By Jack Reimer

Gabriela and The Widow is a wonderfully-crafted novel that will be very hard for readers of all ages to put down for long. It is a book about pain, hardship, and emancipation. It is mesmerizingly written, just like a well-crafted musical piece.

This story is about Gabriela and how she lost everything when her mother died. She felt completely lost and without direction. Gabriela was trying to decide what to do and where to go but instead she hit a terribly desperate state. She lived in village without any protection and because of this she was abused over and over again. This kind of abuse continued until she met La Viuda, a widow.

La Viuda was like a breath of fresh air for Gabriela. She lived within a world that she created for herself, filled with jewels, coins, and old pictures. One of her goals was to write her memoirs, and she wanted Gabriela to help her. Despite the fact that Gabriela was only nineteen years old, her life takes on a whole new meaning and dimension after meeting the widow. As time goes on, she experiences a complete transformation and becomes who she was truly meant to be.

The story is written using many symbols such as flowers, medals, and coins, just to name a few. This novel is one of the best written stories I have read. I will be reading and re-reading it often.

This is Jack Remick’s fourth book. He is a musician and poet. He has written short stories, poems, novellas, and novels.
