This is not simply an account of a period in the author’s life, but the sharing of a beautiful journey through pain, fear, love, and enlightenment, with humour and common sense woven into the tapestry brought to life so vividly here. Reading this book has been an enriching experience for me, even though it brought several tears, it has made me see a few things much more clearly from my own journey through life. I highly recommend it. It is one of very few books that I will definitely read again.
Balawyder invites us in to share in her well-travelled life and shares her deep insights into her grieving process. She raises some of the valid questions we ask ourselves when we have lost a loved one or going through the transition of losing a loved one. Questions encompass things such as, could I have done more, did I say all that I had to say and there is much discussion about the sometimes difficult discomfort of saying "I love you."
Her inner turmoil is expressed deeply and I would recommend this book to anyone who has loved and lost or perhaps may be going through the process of losing someone dear.
This deeply personal memoir takes us through her grieving process. The writing itself is literary, including colourful details of the author's well-travelled life and references to much-loved books.
As she seeks meaning and purpose in the wake of her losses, C.A. Balawyder gains a greater understanding of who she is and the beginnings of self-acceptance. I believe this will help readers as they, too, struggle to make sense of their lives and find peace.
Each chapter takes the reader on a journey through many years of her life. Recalling her experiences grieving the loss of loved ones, The treasured and at times, painful memories of those now passed on. In particular the book is a tribute to her beloved sister, who's loss the author struggles with most of all.
A poignant, authentic and revealing look at one woman's efforts to come to terms with and move forward from the mourning process. And in turn, to become more reconciled with some of the memories from the past that still haunt her.
For readers struggling with the long-term serious illness of a loved one or already grieving their passing. Perhaps contemplating or regretting things that will now remain unspoken or unresolved forever. A book to be considered as an aid to easing and coming to terms with these issues and heartaches, in their own lives.
No one reading this will come away untouched.
The work is extremely well written. I couldn't fault it if I tried.
