An excellent resource for those dealing with death, this book traces the authors journey through grief at the time of the accidental death of a daughter. She shares the solace she received from five authors including Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson.
Our Friend Elizabeth Watson brightened many a Friends General Conference summer gathering with her wisdom and wit. Not everyone knew about the pain she also carried with her after she lost her daughter in a car accident. In her book Guests of my Life Watson offers us a way out of despair through delving into the spiritual lessons favorite writers Dickenson, Rilke, Whittier, Whitman and Tagore offered in their own writings. Elizabeth Watson helped herself grieve through reading. Her book can help us do the same.
The ebook version is available in mobi (for Kindle readers) and epub (for all other ereaders).
