A TRANSFORMATIONAL LOOK AT LOSS
For some, the death of a child is a crippling loss. After Mark Twain’s daughter, Susan, died at age twenty four, he famously said, “It is one of the mysteries of our nature, that a man, all unprepared, can receive a thunder-stroke like that and live.” In Loving Allie, Transforming the Journey of Loss, Dayle E. Spencer chronicles how she received such heartbreaking news and how she survived. Part mythological, part autobiographical, part how-to-manual, this little book has invaluable insights for anyone who has loved and lost.
