Good Grief

This is a true story of love, loss and new life. Suzie Borrows battled for her husband’s life praying for a miracle. God answered her, but not in the way she imagined. He had a plan that exceeded her dreams, and through undeniable revelations His purpose became her purpose.

My thoughts: This book hit home close to home for me. While I haven't lost a spouse, we did lose my sister in law to a brain tumor almost two years ago, so I could relate to that part of the story. You never truly get over losing someone you love, but that doesn't mean that it always hurts so much. I appreciate that this book shares the hope that we have in Jesus. The song "Homesick" by Casting Crowns sums up how I feel.
This is an excellent book to pick up, especially if you are working through grief.
I received this book from Celebrate Lit. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy of this book.

About the Author:
Suzie moved from N. Ireland to America as a child, accepted Jesus at 11, married the preacher’s son at 18, had two children, and a loving marriage for 32 years. Nothing she had experienced prepared her for the devastation she would face. She depended completely on God for comfort and direction. Which led her to begin a widows group, Boston radio show, and Suzie now lives in Westport, MA with her husband Bruce.
