After a significant loss, grief is normal and necessary. But sometimes a mourner’s grief becomes naturally heightened, stuck, or made more complex by especially difficult circumstances, such as suicide, homicide, or multiple losses within a short time period. This is called “complicated grief.” In this primer by one of the world’s most respected grief educators, Dr. Wolfelt helps caregivers understand the various factors that often contribute to complicated grief. He presents a model for identifying complicated grief symptoms and, through real-life examples, offers guidance for companioning mourners through their challenging grief journeys. This book rounds out Dr. Wolfelt’s resources on the companioning philosophy of grief care, making it an essential addition to your professional library.

One day I had a special delivery from heaven. I became the mother of a baby boy with bright blue eyes and blonde hair. Joey just happened to have Down Syndrome, a heart defect and health issues. This story is a recap of only fifteen months with my special gift. I refer to Joey, as my special snowflake throughout this book. What may have seemed to be a tragedy, turned out to be the very opposite. The challenges came with many blessings as I experienced the wraparound presence and love of my Savior Jesus Christ. This is my testimony about a little snowflake that lives in my heart forever. My experiences with my special delivery brought me into a closer walk with my heavenly Father. I would do over in a heartbeat. My prayer is that this story will give others hope, build faith, and experience the love of God for themselves. Mark 8:36 "For what will it profit a man of he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?" Matthew 16:26 (The Living Bible) "What profit is there, if you gain the whole world - and lose eternal life?"

In lyric and narrative verse, William Olsen explores subcultures ranging from the suburban middle class to the urban drug culture to the art world, and along the way, constantly probes at the very nature of human language. Drawing surprising and illuminating connections between the political and historical, the prosaic and the personal, civilization and nature, these poems try to make sense of the individual’s experience of time, memory, and society. The range of Olsen’s images form an organic connection between the physical and the abstract and his hypnotic mixture of colloquial and eloquent language create a sound and music that are uniquely his own. That’s what infinity did, contain and threaten, until friends complied by going one by one to resurface obligingly in memories, and it sometimes still feels we left them at our leisure, that such choice was good so long as a larger choice seemed to succeed it, nor could gazing bereave us of common sense, nor would all plenty and foison fall into penury, nor would shame forever drop its heavy head. Infinity felt like life, and it said so, and waited. It even spelled our autumnal names in solid gold leaves that an inexhaustible supply of wind tossed for such pleasure as we had said and said until it transformed into the profound conviction that the right track was lost—imagine—forever, it turned our tears into pebbles that can’t seep away, that can’t fly away, that we don’t dare to pronounce, yet it seemed concocted out of a clear beautiful sky, yet it peeped out the woodshed and drank from the gutter spout, yet it wrestled with itself and sank in eager mud that presently it might be outwardly known along with all the other creatures that perish, heartbreaking idea among many heartbreaking ideas. --from Infinity

In Eileanan, victory has finally been won, and those of faery kind—from the mighty dragons to the mysterious nyx—have sworn their friendship and aid. Only the sea-dwelling Fairgean have refused to sign the Pact of Peace. Driven by ancient hatreds, they have devoted themselves to destroying all who dwell upon the land. Troubled by the darkness that may lie ahead, Lachlan agrees to release his beloved Iseult from the sacred oath that binds them together. It will then be for Iseult to decide whether she will remain in the mountains to resume life with her own kin, or return to the man who let her go. To help bring peace to Eileanan, Iseult’s flame-haired twin, Isabeau, must also face her most difficult challenge yet. But before she can prove herself worthy of both the scar of the Soul-Sage and the ring of the sorceress, she must first find a way to heal her own wounded spirit.

From the smoky music halls of 1860s Paris to the tumbling skyscrapers of twenty-first-century New York, a sweeping tale of passion, music, and the human heart’s yearning for connection Martin is a forty-year-old lawyer who, despite his success, feels disoriented and disconnected from his life in post-9/11 Manhattan. But even as he comes to terms with the missteps of his past, he questions whether his life will feel more genuine going forward. Decades earlier, in the New York of the 1960s, Anna is destined to be a grande dame of the international stage. As she steps into the spotlight, however, she realizes that the harsh glare of fame may be more than she bargained for. Maria is a tall, awkward, ostracized teenager desperate to break free from the doldrums of 1970s Pittsburgh. When the operatic power of her extraordinary voice leads Maria to Juilliard, New York seems to hold possibilities that are both exhilarating and uncertain. Lucien is a young Parisian at the birth of the modern era, racing through the streets of Europe in an exuberant bid to become a singer for the ages. When tragedy leads him to a magical discovery, Lucien embarks on a journey that will help him—and Martin, Maria, and Anna—learn that it’s not how many breaths you take, it’s what you do with those you’re given. This unlikely quartet is bound together across centuries and continents by the strange and spectacular history of Richard Wagner’s masterpiece opera Tristan and Isolde. Grandly operatic in scale, their story is one of music and magic, love and death, betrayal and fate. Matthew Gallaway’s riveting debut will have readers spellbound from the opening page to its breathtaking conclusion. From the Hardcover edition.
