We are the only ones who are still waiting, in a suspense as old as time: that of women always, everywhere, waiting for the men to come home from the war.
A woman awaits the return of a man who enlisted at the front when the Civil War began. He writes her long letters from France. She reads them to her children by candlelight.
This Penelope is not haunted by suitors, nor does she stay at home undoing at night the weaving she had done during the day.
