"Echoes of Aurora" by Ellen Klages

First appeared in What Remains from Aqueduct Press. Reprinted in Strahan's Year's Best.

This tale builds on nostalgia for old things and mysterious stranger who nonetheless looks familiar. Two middle-aged women fall in love. As suspected, the stranger is magical and cannot stay. Although the plot takes a while to kick in, it's a bittersweet ending.
