Novella Review: World More Full of Weeping by Robert Wiersema

The World More Full of Weeping is a 77 page novella told from two points of view.  The first is the view of Jeff Page, as he discovers his son hasn't returned from playing in the woods.  The second is that of the son, Brian, as he meets a girl in the woods who shows him marvelous things.

It's a sweet, compelling story of love and loss.  And a reminder that doing what you believe is best for someone doesn't usually take into account their own preferences on the matter.
