From their own experiences and from walking with others who have experienced loss, Donna O'Toole and Sauni Wood know that the sadness of grief can be transformed into new awarenesses, new competencies, even joy. Here they tell three stories of loss, resilience, and hope, gathered from ancient and contemporary folk tradition. The stories express a variety of ways people respond to loss and sorrow. They often quicken hope. They evoke lively discussion.
