Love and grief don't have timelines. There is no cut-off point where one day you simply say, "I no longer feel this," it simply transitions to something new.
This compilation of one hundred and five essays peeks behind the curtain of one woman's journey to raise children on her own after her husband's death. It chronicles the struggles of single parenting through trauma and grief, reveals the battle to rediscover herself amidst the ashes of a life no longer suited for her, illuminates the stigma of surviving the suicide of a loved one, and ultimately shows the triumph of starting over. The essays cover ten years where mistakes were made but lessons were always learned.
This collection has only one intention: to inspire whoever reads it to embrace their humanity with grace and self-love.
