Basel used to cross from the side of Aleppo that’s controlled by rebels to the side controlled by the regime. But now, he says, that one-mile stretch has become too dangerous. Also in this show: a country veterinarian gets a phone call at 3 a.m. in this short story by Ron Rash; and Sister Mary McCaffrey spent more than 50 years in a once-thriving convent in Hastings on Hudson, N.Y. But when she was 80, and the number of nuns there had declined, she had to find herself a new home.
