Grief and loss are universal experiences which are shared by all but rarely discussed openly. As a result, many of us feel alone and isolated when we are in the grip of the crushing emotions that accompany the death of someone we love. Nothing prepares us for the barrage of bewildering behaviors, thoughts and reactions that so often follow a loss. When author Peggy Waterfall watched both parents and her life partner die within one year, she emerged with a unique perspective on the timeless experience of grief and loss. In Rainbows and Rain: Finding Comfort in Times of Loss, we learn that it is possible to find joy again, but we must first learn to grieve. We also learn that we are often unable to express to others what we are experiencing and can find ourselves at a loss to adequately convey our feelings. We want desperately to find the right words so that we can explain our strange behavior to our families, our co-workers, our friends. This book helps us to understand the importance of being patient with ourselves and is the first step in healing.
