Looking Forward, Looking Back


Looking forward, Looking Back by Anne-Marie Langenegger

Catherine is happy as the successful manager of a thriving business. Her boss allows her free rein, and she supervises a large staff. Her career path is set. She is close to her family, dates when she wants to, and she only looks ahead.

She meets a young doctor who seems to have similar goals in life: work, train, and put off more personal ties until success and security are achieved.

When Catherine runs into friends she hasn’t seen in nine years, she realizes that while she had gone on to college and had a job, they have remained where she left them. They are content with their roles as wives and mothers. One even suggests that she feels sorry for Catherine and her “empty life”.

After a casual date goes traumatically wrong, Catherine seeks the comfort and protection of her family, finding strength and courage in herself as she draws on their love for her, even as the consequences escalate.

Meanwhile, her connection with the young doctor deepens as he leans on her, reaching out through the phone line for words of comfort after the stresses and demands of his shifts in a busy Emergency department.

Ms. Langenegger tells us, “I wanted to explore the changing roles of women in the workplace and in the home. It had to be a story that brings to life the challenges and the difficult choices that must be made, and that ultimately make it all worth while.
