When grief shatters your world, and nothing is normal anymore, how do you pick up the pieces?


What now? How do you go on? What if the pieces don’t fit anymore? How do you survive the despair, recover from the loss, and – dare you even think it – learn to thrive again?


Heart-centered, but practical.


Filled with raw emotion from in-the-moment journal entries, but more than just a memoir, this book shares the story of one widow’s journey through the darkness of grief to the light of a new existence, and provides a how-to guide for the reader to do the same. She learns to bear the burden of pain, release it, and then she sets out to determine her new normal. In the process, she shares her insights and tips anyone can use to create a better life.
