This is not a classic book that will pat you on the shoulder and tell you that..
“Everything happens for a reason”,
“God takes the good ones and has a plan”,
“At least you were close and you got to live with him/her for many years” and other fake platitudes like that. It will not tell you that, what you are going through will soon become lighter or you will get over it. Neither will it try to make you defeat your grief as if it is a decease. It will not attempt to deduce a tragic event from something above and explain it metaphysically or from a religious standpoint.
This book will support you in living with your grief, in understanding it, in reconciling with it and in walking together towards the new unfair path that life put you in.
A life with no logic, where the universe does not reward the good persons, nor looks after them or owns them anything. A life which can not be lived without empathy and compassion.
“We all have two lives,
the second begins
when we realize
we only have one.”
