An Intimate Portrait of Love, Loss, and Unlikely FriendshipBook - 2012
Griefland. It s a place no one wants to visit a place without borders where language is inadequate and pain is constant. It s a place where every morning one awakens to the stark reality that a loved one will never be seen, heard or embraced again. This is a place that Armen Bacon and Nancy Miller know all too well, for when they met, both of them had lost a child a son, Alex, and a daughter, Rachel. Griefland provides an intimate portrait of what tragedy does to the human soul, how it changes one s life, and most important, how it can be survived. With achingly beautiful language, this book explores the acute moment-to-moment experience of grief. But it also transcends that and speaks to the redemptive power of friendship, trust, intimacy, and love. Together they discover a will and desire to move forward, recognizing that life is the ultimate prize for those who survive this excruciating journey."
