I was attracted to this book because...

   In addition to being written by Lewis, I lost both of my parents in the summer of 2014. I am seeking comfort and information on grief. 

This book was about

   The book was originally the journal C.S. Lewis wrote after the death of his wide, Joy Davidson. The original writing was intended for publication, but for himself as he worked through his experiences. 

Things I liked about this book

   I was amazed at how many of the emotions and thoughts I’ve been experiencing were discussed in the book. The possibility that others would relate and be encouraged they were not the only ones experiencing these things was exactly why Lewis thought it was important to share his writing. I’m glad he did. His words have brought me great comfort.

Why you should read this book

   If you have experienced a major loss in your life, this is a great book to read to walk along side someone who has gone through the experience. If you know someone who is going through the grief process, it will help you understand what they are going through. It will also help you watch for times when they are discouraged and perhaps give you some ideas to each to them.

This book lived up to the back cover copy

  The book cover promised an ‘honest reflection on the fundamental issues of life, death, and faith in the midst of loss.” Lewis’ words are very honest and genuine and can bring you encouragement to ask questions and stand in your faith.
