“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.” ——Isaiah 43:19 Sunday, 8th March 2009 is a day forever etched in the recesses of my mind. As salty tears streamed down my face, I fathomed life as a widow. I knelt before Jacob’s body and he whispered to me, “Maama Isabel, do not worry about me. I am fine.” His whisper gave me hope as I contemplated the pieces of this altered reality. How would I tell my girls? And what of the life of the unborn child who grew inside my belly? Finding my inner strength, I slowly rose to my feet, determined to face whatever lay before me. This was the first day of a new chapter of my life.

What A Story!

It has been a while since a book made me cry! Martha successfully transported me into her shoes, talking me along in her journey through shock, loss and pain. Beyond the story is a teaching guide and learning tool to help widows and others deal with loss through their grief journey. Part of me wished the author would have kept this fully a story and saved the teaching content for another book entirely, but that is just me. However you dish it up, this solid book will captivate and help many.
