Continuing to begin

Rachel, finally, realizes how her marriage has been colored by the hurt and disappointment of her parents’ marriage.

She had merged her husband with the image of her father—“that image of abandonment and betrayal,” explains Barbara Scheiber in her novel We’ll Go to Coney Island. At last, however, Rachel’s insight helped her to get unstuck, to move forward without the baggage of the past.

“She marveled that she could see her husband now without the clutter of old sorrows, that they could talk, forgive. They were still at the beginning, she knew that—beginning to learn the steps of a new dance. Maybe that was the best of life—continuing to begin.”
