A bit of Twighlight Zone in this one - well written.
Fascinating portrayal of the spiritual life. I like how you named the character Christina to hint at "Christian" and how her well-loved and talented husband passed his gifts to her, much like Christ does with His Church through the Holy Spirit. Well done!
This is funny. It seemed that people weren't understanding that I had written a parable of the spiritual life (Christ is the dying man and the Church is the wife who receives His Spirit), so I put an "annonymous" comment on my site that would sound like a positive review.

Is my face red?
I'm glad you explained. :) It took me a while even with the second reading to understand the piano was figuratively the "second wife." The story was vivid and enchanting. Knowing the allegory makes it even better. Congratulations on your Highly Commended.
