Join Gemma Cannon as she takes us on her five-year odyssey. It begins with her discovery that not even her experience and training as a grief counselor could help her cope with her own brutal loss. But then, in a small reading room in a Maine library, she uncovers a message from the 19th century that overturns current conventional wisdom. It reveals the path to renewal, and she is transformed. In these pages, she shares the inspiration from the past that transfigures loss so that we, like previous generations of readers, may be sustained by hope. Paperback. 151 pgs.
