This beautifully designed collection of quotes from literary masters and everyday people will comfort anyone who has known loss or is in the midst of sorrow. Divided into three sections—living, dying, and letting go—the moving selections from Anne Lamott, C. S. Lewis, Henri Nouwen, Alice Walker, and hundreds of others demystify death and celebrate life. Quotations flow from one to another, helping readers move through their pain toward a place of peace, creating a perfect, caring gift for when a card is not enough.


“A refreshing mix of the profound and humorous, the prophetic and the practical.” —Gary Thomas, author, Sacred Pathways and Thirsting for God
