A very warm and well written book. Poetic and sensitive with great depth and insight to the human soul. Kindred spirits sharing loss and grief over a loved one, challenged to reflect on one's own life and meaning. Grace, the Author of love in the bigger picture, comprehension, empathy and forgiveness are but a few areas to tackle, work through and come to a place of peace.
An inspiring and artistic read indeed.
