Overview

Story is a crucial component of navigating the roller coaster that is grief. The beautifully written stories and poems in the Just a Little More Time anthology share tender last moments with loved ones, muse about what happens once we die, and most of all celebrate and delight with tales of love. The book’s magic is hidden in the smallest details that underlie the universal message: that you can find hope after significant loss. Whether exploring the loss of a cherished forest or beloved wife, the love the authors capture is both fierce and tender. Their stories uplift and inspire the reader to think of loss in a new way—a blessing to have cared so much.

Over fifty authors write about their experience of losing a sense of place, innocence, marriage, health, child, parent, or nature. The poems and essays are woven together to form an inspiring testament to the importance of being brave in love. Contributions vary from the humorous, to provocative, to poignant. Contributors include Azim Khamisa, author and founder of TKF, Nyaniso Tutu-Burris activist and granddaughter to Desmond Tutu, and poet Donna Hilbert. Sections include: Lost and Found, Gifts of Love, Nature, I Would Like to Say, Discoverable Truths, Always With Me, Last Moments, and Life After Life.
