In the midst of the Covid epidemic, a medical doctor chose to express the depth of what he was encountering through forty-nine magnificently crafted sonnets. John Okrent's This Costly Season examines what it was like to be on the front lines of the loss of others, as well as encountering his own grief, while holding on to the preciousness of life and the beauty of our world. This book will bring you close to what it means to be human in times such as these, and inspire you to remember how to endure no matter what the circumstances. Truly a book of poems for our times, by a caretaker and poet of the highest order.
