Poignant, inspiring, and encouraging reflections for those who grieve from one who has been there. For Ann Dawson, her "season of grief" came with the death of her 18-year-old son, Andrew, who was killed in a car accident the summer after his high school graduation. As she sought to find meaning in the senselessness of her son's death, Ann looked to the words of others who had grieved the loss of a loved one. In reading numerous books, she came to realize she was not alone in her sorrow, that others had walked this path of grief and transcended the pain. Now in A Season of Grief, she shares this realization with others. This book is a remarkable collection of quotations, personal reflections, and prayers intended for those who find themselves in their own "season of grief." The insights and stories from Ann's own experience are carefully placed along side the comforting and often inspiring words of writers like C.S. Lewis and Kahlil Gibran. Whether you've lost a child, a spouse, a parent, or a friend, A Season of Grief promises to be a comforting companion in the difficult days ahead.
