This book is full of serendipitous moments; magical events unfolding through grief and love. The message is simple but powerful: the loss of a loved one might be impossible to overcome; but one can learn to turn grief into hope.
As this book demonstrates, grief can bring about unimaginable opportunities for self-growth, which not only benefit those who are grieving, but can also reach an entire community. Thanks to this book, many readers who are struggling with grief will find hope and beauty in the process of coming to terms to the sense of emptiness our loved ones leave behind once their lives on this earth comes to an end.
This inspiring book will give you tears of joy and sorrow in equal doses, so be prepared: you’ll cry and laugh with the author from one paragraph to the next. In my opinion, this beautiful sentence captures the spirit of the book “We sit in circle, in the middle of the big hole that Rob has left behind...” The emptiness is there, but so is the strength of one mother and two children being there for each other, starting a new chapter of unconditional love.
