“The pain of grief is always accompanied by gifts that put us in touch with the best and most profound aspects of our humanity. Through Leslie’s unflinchingly honest but uplifting ability to gain perspective on her own deep suffering in the wake of her mother’s sudden and violent death, we are compassionately guided to apply mindful practices to our own lives and losses.” Shana B
“An absolute must for anyone who has suffered significant losses in their life. I was mesmerized by this book. I couldn’t put it down and read it in one day. I’ve gone back to it many times and find new takeaways each time. The vulnerability with which it is written is so compelling and appreciated. I aspire to face the losses in my life with the same grace and positivity as Leslie.” – Sarah H
