What Readers Say

Rita shares a visceral and personal perspective of her grief journey that is candid, painful, at times raw, yet uplifting, as she struggles to regain the power to move forward. She shares the complexity of her thoughts and emotional state and her ability, as well as her inability, to handle situations in a straightforward and unadorned fashion. A captivating read right from the first page.

Rosemary Millar
Rita’s honesty took me back to when my husband died and the myriad emotions I have experienced, both then and now. I could relate to all of the confusion, anger and aloneness she felt. It is a privilege to have read this book and benefited from it.
Lynne Humphrey
Rita’s loss came at a time when her life was exactly where it should be: perfect marriage, teenage children and long-term friendships. The reader is struck by the power of one tumultuous moment unleashing a torrent of unrelated events into the path of a struggling individual.
