The Woman in the Window
A. J. Finn
Contributed by Eleanor Sherer
Chapter 13

Anna’s morning routine starts with breakfast. She then replies to the “Agora” forum in which she offers medical advice to her online patients who also fear open spaces. Just as Anna is about to log out, she receives a  message from a new user who has been referred to her. The patient is a seventy-year-old granny who has been having trouble getting out of her house since the death of her husband. From the author’s transcription of the discourse between Anna and the granny, it is evident that Anna is quite adept in dealing with the patients. The case of the old lady has similar dynamics to that of her own. Just like Anna, Lizzie had been unable to go outside her house after the death of her husband. Moreover, the outgoing personality of the patient makes Anna feel as though she has “connected” with her. Siting the similarity of their situations, Anna is enthusiastic to offer her help to Lizzie.
