Author Sandy Zaugg knows something about hardships and trials. When her children were 8 and 13, she lost her husband to colon cancer. Nine years later, her son died as a result of an automobile accident. This book is the honest rendition of one woman’s struggle through devastating grief and her ultimate realization that reaching out to others is often the best healer.
No two experiences are the same. Adults grieve differently than children. Women grieve differently than men. Death resulting from a long, drawn-out illness differs from sudden unexpected loss. Loss by suicide isn’t the same as loss through an act of violence. Zaugg doesn’t pretend to have the answers for everyone. What she does offer are some very candid, practical suggestions (no matter what your loss or circumstance) for facing the future—moment by moment, day by day, year by year.
