"One by one, men's bodies are washing up on the shore of the river that passes through town, where they are claimed by the local women as their missing husbands and fathers, even though the faces of the dead men are unrecognizable. A tug-of-war ensues between the local police, who insist that the women couldn't possibly recognize their loved ones, and the women demanding the right to bury their beloveds."

Widows is a testament to the countless people who are taken away for questioning and never return, and a tribute to those whose fierce defiance ensures that the dead are not forgotten."--BOOK JACKET
