This beautiful and thought-provoking book draws together a diverse collection of experiences from those coming to terms with loss. In the past, many works on bereavement and loss were written by experts, based on their work with distressed clients, leading to theories about stages of grief that felt dry and prescriptive. In contrast, this is a book of many voices, from all walks in life. It reveals how the experience of death and responses to it, is as varied as the human condition. It is to be welcomed, read slowly, and perhaps dipped into in quiet moments when our hearts need to know that there is a place beyond the desolation of loss.
