You have never read a book like this before...

From Heartbreak to Happiness: An Intimate Diary of Healing arrives at a time when the world deeply needs it. Divorce, disease, and death shatter our personal lives--while disasters, violence, and war devastate our world. More people feel broken-hearted than ever before.

How do we find our way back to happiness? Like a roadmap, Aurora's diary reveals the journey from Heartbreak to Happiness. It is a single mother's odyssey of tragedy and triumph after the sudden death of her 33-year-old husband. While each person's story is unique, the process of healing a broken heart and reclaiming happiness is very much the same.

This inspiring diary is real. The miracles of healing that it has worked in people's lives are real.

Open this book, and let it open your heart. You could save thousands of dollars in therapy and years of heartache.

Format: Hardcover
Aurora's book is a storm of passion. She faced her own rock-bottom grief with remarkable insight and transformed it into a gift of love. In completely original terms, she invested her personal explorations and observations with fierce passion producing a timeless diary.

At one time or another, we have all experienced our own heartache and sometimes we do not know the way out. In this beautifully edited book, you can feel the full range of Aurora's emotional experience from dark to light, and dappled shadows in between.

As an artist, I am very passionate about bringing peace to this earth. By connecting us all to the core of our humanity, this book helps us feel what we have in common, no matter how different we may seem on the surface.

This splendid book is handsomely designed. It is a work of art that has been salvaged from the emotional ruins of terrible years. This is one of those rare and special books that makes a real difference.

When I read this book I couldn't believe that someone had put into words all the pain and emptiness I was experiencing with my own grieving. The author writes with truth and is unafraid to reveal her darker moments. I cried several times. But by the end of the book I was inspired by her hopefulness and open heart. "Heartbreak to Happiness" is a must read for anyone who is experiencing any type of personal loss or appreciates a book that is poetic and filled with life-affirming insights.

I will not give away the ending by saying that Aurora emerges from her personal tragedy healed, centered and strong. The book itself will reveal this page by page. Take note of Aurora's bright confident smile on her photo on the cover. Then, no matter which dark moment you've just read about, there she will be, smiling back at you. Thus she encourages you to believe that YOU, too, can come through your grief, and regain strength and courage to go forward.

Whatever loss or tragedy may have befallen you, I hope that you find a quiet, comfortable spot to read this honest and compelling personal odyssey. Aurora is not some pontificating PhD, but a fellow human being who managed to rise above the pit of overwhelming despair. As you read her eloquently written daily entries, and the perfectly selected quotations, you will realize that you are not alone on your path. You will begin to comprehend the bigger picture of suffering and growth. And you, too, will draw strength from her healing journey.

Please give this book to a loved one or friend who is struggling with a personal loss. If that person is you, then come share the light at the end of the tunnel with Aurora Winter.

Those who experience loss of love feel that they are alone and that it ONLY takes time to heal, take my word on this; Reading Aurora's book "From Heartbreak to Happiness" helps you understand that others feel much of what you do and, that it is what you do with your time that matters...not simply waiting for the passing of time. This was a Great Investment in my future and I reccomend it to you!

Finally a book that tru'ly expressed all the emotions I felt after loosing my husband six years ago, but didn't know how to put in to words. I couldn't put the book down, I needed to read each page because with each one I could feel Aurora's growth a long with my own. Thank you Aurora for sharing so others can heal or at least begin by reading your words.
