Scattered, by Marjan Sierhuis
His undivided attention smothered her: a breakfast tray that appeared on her lap every morning, scribbled loved notes shoved under tear-stained pillows, kisses that were planted on turned cheeks, bruises hidden under long-sleeved sweaters, heart-shaped boxes of chocolates received on Valentine's Day, birthday presents no longer appreciated, promises made but never kept, family heirlooms shattered in a thousand different pieces, broken bones and a heart that could no longer be mended, unspeakable acts that begged for forgiveness, ashes that were scattered from a fire that burned long ago.
