The undertaker’s wife waits. She weaves. She builds.

The undertaker practices his art with consummate skill. He has raised it to an art through the high craft of the Connable Method. Through it, he has managed to transform the ugliness of death into a thing of dignity and beauty. Victims brutalized by war, street fights, tavern brawls, ambushes, fires, every hazard in a raw West—these, in his hands, become presentable. Everywhere on a frontier that erupts with life and death, he offers his skill: to the rich of San Francisco, to the bawds and ruffians of the Barbary Coast, to Kansas cowboys, outlaws, soldiers, and sheriffs. He is devoted to dignifying the dead.

His wife is devoted to making her marriage whole, in spite of the tragedy that surrounds it—and in spite of the tragedy that strikes one terrible afternoon.

Today the undertaker is called in to disguise the suicide of a famous financier. Only his art can save America’s financial markets. Her task on this day is secret, an act of understanding and dedication. In the end, it is the undertakers wife who, through love, is able to transcend death.
