Grief often follows a spiral path, bringing us back to a place we have been before but at a different level. In this book the author invites us to walk part of the spiral with her, accompanied by others who have experienced loss and raw grief. In each chapter Bairbre draws on the psalms as an invitation to personal prayer and reflection. There we find anger, despair and frustration but also peace, hope and joy. Bairbre’s belief and experience is that walking the spiral, although painful, can ultimately be life-giving. For by confronting death we deny its power to control and limit our lives so that we may live.
