About the Book

If someone you love dies or you suffer a profound loss of a deep relationship, a career, or a physical ability, this is a book you must have.

Grief is not a disease. It is an opportunity to look deeply at your life and create a new life for yourself.

The example of the author’s own journey will encourage you to take sufficient time to move through the grief slowly and patiently in the face of our “quick fix” society.

The author invites you to find your own answers to these important questions: What is my role in the world now? How do I bring healing to my life? Will I experience peace and joy once again?
