Life Came to a Standstill details eight poignant stories about love, loss and hope after the painful loss of a loved one. Life Came to a Standstill follows the journey of the eight authors and how to maneuver the pain of grief after losing a loved one and find a path to a different life after their loss. I highly recommend Life Came to a Standstill to anyone who has lost a loved one. Great read.
