Mourning Has Broken

By C. A. Balawyder

Copyright 2013.

The loss of her parents and sister inspired author and blogger Carol Balawyder to write the essays in this collection. She writes about her relationship with the loved ones she lost. Other pieces focus on such topics as travel, online dating, religion, and, of course, mourning.

Having lost my parents, grandparents, and husband, I can identify with the feelings the author expresses, especially the guilt at not having done more for her loved ones before they passed. If you are grieving and have similar feelings, this book should help you understand you’re not alone. If you’re suffering from a recent loss, be sure you have plenty of Kleenex handy when you read it.

  1. Carol, a beautiful and true review of your book – one that meant a lot to me whilst suffering from sadness and loss. Abbie is right about keeping the tissues to hand! The book opens emotions that one often pushes away in the midst of grief.

    • Even after ten years there is still the emptiness and sense of loss. Pain and loss are powerful motivators. Writing for me was a way to express my grief. Thanks for being here, Jacqui.
