Heartfelt, authentic and an excellent description of the grieving process and moving through it. This book really is "a life vest to those who are drowning in their grief." It provides the reader hope in that they do have agency even in the midst of "emotions in a tangled mess". Essential truths are explored in this book: "Grief is hard, but it is not the end"; "Embrace every single feeling"; Balance "Leaning into the pain and breathing"; "By talking about your grief you are helping your heart explain to your brain what has happened." "Grief in our heart is the way of healing the pain of your loss." "Letting go of pain is not letting go of your loved one." "Life after loss is ever changing." This is a book you can read more than once and get something new from it each time. - Rev. Dr. Rosemary MacKay, Cranberry Hospice and Palliative Care
