Illustrations by Sharon M. Hickey

How does one face the unbearable grief, the roller coaster emotions, and the nagging questions of faith and doubt following the death of a loved one? After her husband Charlie’s death, Pauline Flynn looked deeply into her soul for answers to the inner conflict his passing posed. She found herself on a journey that has taken her through grief, prayer, meditation, writing poetry, and journaling, with life-changing and mystical moments, as well as experiences that provide an array of hopeful, human, and thought-provoking reflections.
