At the peak of her success with "Co-dependent No More", Melody Beattie's life was turned upside-down by the death of her 12-year-old son. Her world shattered, for 18 months Beattie drew into a dark cave of despair. She couldn't think of one good reason to keep going. Then, gradually, she began to recognize that we always have a choice between succumbing to despair and embracing life. And, slowly, she learned that a passion for living can not only be reawakened but can also flourish against the greatest odds: we learn to approach what we have with great respect, to let go of that over which we have no control, and to love both in the moment - beyond the bounds of time and place. In this book, Beattie makes us see that even when we feel that life is not on our side, joy can still be found in the ordinary moments. Through a series of more than a dozen brief, reflective tales - universal "lessons of love" - she shows us how to find the magic in our lives when it all seems too hard to take.
