When Losses Become Legacies features nine memoirs, creatively told, about grief, God, and glory. In these true stories, modern-day saints meet suffering, their Savior, and-sometimes-the supernatural.

Sooner or later, we all lose someone we love. Maybe the person closest to us. Maybe early in our lives, or theirs. Loss and grief have immeasurable power to draw us into darkness or deliver us into a higher purpose.

For those who follow Christ, loss will, ideally, point us back to the Cross and its redemptive edge. If we're willing to tread on that edge, it's where we often meet our legacy.

In When Losses Become Legacies, Christy Brunke and Kristina Cowan share profound stories of personal loss. The path through tragedy differs for each mourner. Yet the Christ-follower encounters a universal truth: Our Redeemer doesn't unravel the mystery of suffering. Instead, he lights our way through it.

It might feel like a dimly lit, confounding stretch of time. As we persevere, we scratch the surface of God's love for us, and tap into his endless reservoir of hope. Our character grows. Sharpened by scars and rooted in faith, we just might find our enduring legacy.

Kristina Cowan was born in Ohio in the middle of the worst fashion decade of the modern era. (You guessed it: the seventies.) Until the space shuttle Challenger perished, she hitched her wagon to the stars, hoping to be an astronaut. Soon after, she landed on her other love, writing. She's been doing it since, covering everything from education to women's issues to 9/11. Her first book-When Postpartum Packs a Punch-delves into the issue of new parents' mental health. She earned graduate and undergraduate degrees from Northwestern University, in journalism and speech. A former full-time journalist based in D.C., she used to chase stories on Capitol Hill and across the country. Now a married mom and freelancer in Chicagoland, she chases stories with more forgiving deadlines-along with her kids, cats, and English cream retriever. Catch up with her at KristinaCowan.com.
