The grief that follows the sudden death of a loved one is a universal malaise that brings protracted and desperate anguish. Each such death affects numerous people: thus, it is an affliction of plague proportions but a subject that few are able to discuss with those who are suffering. How the author overcame this dilemma after the loss of his wife of forty-three years is the subject of this moving memoir. It tells of the final year of Christine’s life, the cause and traumatic consequences of her death, and the strategy involved in the ensuing search for peace and acceptance. Initially conceived as a memorial to Christine’s remarkable life, the book has evolved into an invaluable aid memoir for those searching for an inner peace following the loss of a loved one.
