House of Mist and The Shrouded Woman: Novels by Maria Luisa Bombalby Maria Luisa Bombal, Naomi Lindstrom (Other)
The shrouded woman, a corpse reviewing her life as she views the mourners at her wake, perceives in the personal ties that made up her life a failure of all parties to benefit from the possibilities of true intimacy. Helga, the heroine of House of Mist, has a powerfully imaginative inner life entirely unappreciated by her husband until he finally learns to value her as more than a trophy.
