"The Nature of Comets”
“The Nature of Comets” talks of death and love, and love in death. Sigrid Olsen
pairs two girls who die young—one a child of the twentieth century, the other a
millennia-old archaeological find—and links them through the scientist and brother
who understands them both. Though far separated in time, both young lives
illustrate how love and sacrifice make us human in any age.
