The Wife’s First Grief

Figure descriptions
A woman stands in the fenced-in yard of a house. She places both hands on the gate and looks down at two dogs, who sit and look out at the street. There is an open, latticed, second-story window on the house behind her. More houses line the street. Men, women, and another dog emerge from a house in the background; another man and women appear to run into the same house. Additional figures gather at a body of water further in the distance. The sun is low in the sky and is reflected in the water. Full-page illustration.
