Thirty-four water color paintings and short journal entries follow the month-by-month process of grief and moving ahead after loss. An artist illustrates and shares short journal entries of the year after the death of a loved husband after a long illness.
A heartwarming and beautiful book. Is This How it Will Be? is filled with love and wisdom. The poignant words and paintings reached out and grabbed me in a deep and tender way. I see this honest and evocative book as a gift that will help others who are struggling to make sense of their grief experiences. Carole Geithner, author of the novel, If Only Scholastic Press
