Some lessons we learn at school; some we learn from experience. But there are some life lessons that only others can teach us.
Two women meet every Friday morning at eleven o'clock at a cemetery. One is grieving over the tragic and early death of her mother. The other, mourning the loss of her daughter, shepherds the younger woman through the stages of grief. Together they come to understand what it means to live in a world full of joy and sadness, how death is an intrinsic part of life and how love stays with us forever.
Court of the Myrtles is a tender and wise, funny and sad story about grief, loss and acceptance, and about the people we might meet on the other side.
