WILMINGTON, NC, August 20, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — As of this date, 156,000 deaths have occurred as a result of the Covid-19 virus. That means 156,000 grieving families. The recent explosion in Lebanon has thus far taken another 100, Hurricane Isais 6.
For all of us, death is a certainty. If given time to prepare, the sting is perhaps lessened a bit. It is the untimely deaths we experience that can give rise to depression and, for some, a sense of hopelessness. Learning how to handle the grief surrounding the death of a loved one is one of the most important things we can do, if we hope to live rich, full lives and avoid the traps of despondency and pessimism. Some of us can, given the right mindset, journey from despair to celebration.
Sibling Loss: A Sister’s Journey From Despair To Celebration is a first-person account of one of the most devastating and least talked about subjects: a child or young person’s loss of a sibling. Laura Prince shares her decades-long process of healing that is a lifelong struggle.
Grief and hope are intertwined. When faced with the inevitable grief of losing a loved one, something that will happen to all of us many times, we are forced to choose between hope and despair. To find either, we must look within. This is a book that brings hope. It gives us a path out of the ever-present darkness and leads us instead to appreciation. Above all, it shows us that we should never take our loved ones for granted.
Laura Prince shares her story and her many insights into the numbing grief that surrounds such a loss. Recovering from the sudden death of her beloved brother over the course of many years, Prince openly and candidly examines the pitfalls and surprising triumphs of grieving. She offers readers a window into her world and allows us to share in her sadness—and in the eventual celebration of her brother as she slowly works her way into a place of quiet joy and gratitude.
Readers and reviewers alike have praised Sibling Loss. One called it “The best story illustrating the long term consequences of unresolved childhood grief that I have seen.” Another said, “Sibling Loss: A Sister’s Journey from Despair to Celebration is an excellent read and one I would recommend to everyone.”
Allan Schnarr, of the Center for Grief Recovery in Chicago said, “Sibling Loss is not a book you read at a dispassionate distance. It is not for you if you choose to avoid facing your losses, not unless you become willing to turn around and face yourself. The reading is a deeply personal encounter with Laura, as she lays bare the unspeakable tragedy of the death of her beloved brother. As you encounter Laura, the mirror she offers will draw you in to the journey inside your own broken heart . . .There is so much to learn here about longing for love, losing love, and searching for it unwaveringly. This is the thread weaving Laura’s narrative. It is at the archetypal core of each journey through life, love lost and found.
“Laura makes it clear that fully grieving the loss of love brings one to a new home, a renewed discovery of love, a love strong enough and wise enough to walk through each new loss with durable, irrepressible grace. Thank you Laura”
Laura’s story, ‘Sibling Loss, A Sister’s Journey from Despair to Celebration’, is a book that would be appropriate for anyone who has ever lost, or will ever lose a sibling. That would be nearly all of us.
