Dorothy always wanted to get out of Kansas … so she went to Mars.
Told by the Lady Astronaut who once lived next to Aunty Em’s farm, who is now an old woman being treated by… Dr. Dorothy. The Lady is old, her husband is old and dying. A lot of life happened, between then and now, but Dorothy still has that gift.
“It’s strange seeing something that you made that long ago. This one was in flight, but had its head turned to the side as though it were looking back over its shoulder. It had an egg clutched in its talons.”
It’s an amazing story, full of heart-breaking choices old and new.
