About the Author

Krisanne Smith Roll, M.Ed., Indiana University Southeast says that following the birth of her firstborn child, Sophie, I gave up the briefcase for the diaper bag because mothering is, for me, my spiritual act of worship. Krisanne lives in English, Indiana, with Jeff, her business and community leader husband of 28 years, and five of their six children-three of whom are adopted. During her more than 21 years of mothering, she has found time to teach Sunday school, write youth materials for her church, substitute teach in the public school, be a co-owner in the family lumber business, be an active advisor for Christian World Adoption located in North and South Carolina, and serve as the founder and parent coordinator for an area wide adoption support group-and today, while her children are being lovingly cared for by extended family members, and just as this book goes to press-Krisanne joins her husband, Jeff, for several weeks of mission work in Africa. Active in the adoption community, Krisanne witnesses grief expressed in others' lives as she meets families coping with infertility, as well as birth parents who are giving their children up for adoption. However, she says, Experiencing the death of my loved one opened wide my eyes and heart-to that all-encompassing pain of raw grief.

By D. Eric Schansberg on February 14, 2008
Format: Paperback
I enjoyed the book immensely. It is a softer version of C.S. Lewis' book, A Grief Observed. And she adds a small-town feel that should make it especially poignant for those from small towns-- a point that makes the book far more enjoyable.

I can't speak directly to the subject of grief since no one has died who has been especially close to me. But having dealt with those who have grieved in a pastoral sense--and trying to imagine that the grieving would read anything--I think this would be "effective" in helping people work through their grief. I think it would also be a useful resource for those who counsel others within grief.

The author puts into words what most of us think but would never give voice to. Her insight into grief and it's disruption of daily life is
extremely realistic and to the point. I believe it took much courage to write a book with such frankness and freedom of pretence.

There is more information on this amazing new author on her web site

Feelings of grief are hard to explain but yet Author Roll captured my every emotion. This book allowed me to walk my trail of grief with a friend.

I've found alot of similarities in this book to the grief I felt at the loss of my own father. It's not easy to say goodbye to someone you love and then accept the permanent change it makes to your family dynamic. The author does a wonderful job of weaving the entire experience of her special relationship with her father. It is a wonderful read that will touch your heart moving you to tears and then to laughter. If you grew up in a small town you will love this book. Be sure and check out the web site [...] where you will find pictures and more information about the author.
