This isn't a very long read but I feel sure I will return to it many times. I can wholly relate to the author's feelings and he has managed to put them in words that have so far eluded me. For far too long I have struggled with guilt and and how to move forward in my life and feel that this book has addressed many of the feelings that have left me feeling terribly conflicted. I can't recommend enough.
John Polo is a widower, stepdad, speaker and aspiring author. Somehow, through loss and horrific tragedy, John became a better man.
"Love after loss has rarely been written about so candidly. An ode to love, loss and new beginnings, poignant and cuttingly insightful, Love Loss and Awakening will leave no heart untouched and likely be returned to many times over. It is recommended without reservation."
Freed's story elicits vividly painful and, ultimately, a broad redemptive spectrum of emotions--restorative and inspirational! A heartfelt and profound account of confronting the death of a beloved spouse, "Love, Loss, and Awakening" combines pathos, humor, and gutsy truth from a survivor's direct vantage point.
