“Widow’s Walk: Wandering in the Wilderness of Grief”: a story of hope in the face of loss. “Widow’s Walk: Wandering in the Wilderness of Grief” is the creation of published author, Barbara Fusco. Barbara Fusco was an only child who grew up on a farm in New Jersey where her love of nature was evident from the beginning. Upon completing a BS in 1963 from University of Pennsylvania in East Stroudsburg, she met Eugene Fusco, who she married six weeks later. After raising two daughters and twenty-five years of marriage, they fulfilled their lifelong dream by moving to Chincoteague Island, Virginia to live on the water. She remarried seventeen years after her husband’s untimely death. She currently divides her time between Chincoteague Island and Bordentown, New Jersey.
