Mourning Has Broken – A Memoir on Grief: http://www.amazon.com/Mourning-Has-Broken-C-Balawyder/
Mourning Has Broken offers a moving and poignant look at grief and loss. Giving herself a year of mourning after her sister’s untimely death, the author goes about her life as memories and myriads of emotions assail her. In this collection of narrative non-fiction essays, the author does an exceptional job finding words to capture and express some very raw feelings and emotions not only about the death of a dear sister but also about the mourning of a mother, a father, a close friend, a career and a religion. Readers who have known loss – not just of loved ones but of marriages, jobs, friendships- will find much to relate to in this book, and will particularly appreciate the author’s ability to be frank and open and at times humorous about feelings that might be difficult to acknowledge.
