The journey through grief is the loneliest of all and an understanding companion is a lifeline when all else is in turmoil. Joan Wilson has suffered three devastating bereavements. Her daughter Marie died in the notorious IRA Remembrance Day bombing in Enniskillen in 1987. The tragedy brought the family unwanted fame, yet their courage and forbearance modelled how good can overcome evil. Not long afterwards, their only son Peter was killed in a car crash, and this was to prove a final straw for Joan's husband who, already unwell, died suddenly at home. Joan relates the story of each of these losses and weaves into her moving narrative excerpts from the thousands of letters she received, poems, prayers and Bible readings that helped her go on. Arranged in short sections, each dealing with a different phase of grief, this sympathetic book offers friendship and support to all walking this lonely road.
