Nearly everyone will be touched by grief at some point in their lives. If not you, then someone you know. If not now, then later. We all grieve differently, and for different reasons, but we all seek the same eventual healing. This is a story about a woman who lost her husband unexpectedly and her efforts to rebuild her life. But it is really a story about any kind of grief that can happen to anyone. Most importantly, it's a story about hope. There is respite for the wounded soul, and while time doesn't always heal it can certainly introduce new perspectives and solutions. Watching someone you love grieve can be just as difficult as grieving yourself. It can be hard to know what to say, how to feel, how to help. Often we are at a loss for words, and we punish ourselves for this -- as if saying just the right thing will make the grief go away. Words may be part of the answer, but they are never the whole answer -- not if the grief is real. Society has rules about grief, but grief itself has no rules. A Single Ray of Sunlight is a book about setting aside preconceptions and expectations and walking straight into grief -- your own or someone else's -- then patiently negotiating the meandering path to healing.
