Description

Raw, honest and personal thoughts to comfort you on the journey through grief.

Grief can often feel like a gnawing homesickness for a place where you used to live, but can never return to. Richard Littledale has written a series of short, candid thoughts and reflections from his own experience of widowhood that will resonate and bring comfort and understanding to anyone experiencing bereavement.

These thoughts are written as postcards from the land of grief, as they are used to convey a message from this foreign country of bereavement. Postcards are, by definition, a small snapshot of a feeling at any one time, not long and drawn out essays, and these thoughts provide an accessible way to identify feelings and draw hope from a fellow traveller.

Richard also includes practical resources and advice on the grieving process, and reflects on how his faith in God has sustained him. The book is deliberately designed to be able to dip in and out of as required at the point of need. It is also useful for those who want to give a helpful book to comfort a friend, or for anyone wanting to help understand how their bereaved loved one might be feeling.

‘Richard’s writing is poignant, evocative and comforting all at once. I am confident this book will serve as a guiding light with which others can begin to navigate their own grief as they recognize their experiences and emotions within his honest narrative.’ - Heidi Travis, Sue Ryder Chief Executive

‘A postcard is about all you can read when your brain is knocked out by grief. That’s why this book works so well, not just for people on this ghastly journey, but also for those who struggle to help them.’ - Jennifer Rees Larcombe, bereavement and trauma counsellor

‘When someone dies, whether they be someone we love or someone loved by a friend or relative, it can often be hard to find words to express our feelings. In this beautiful and searingly honest series of reflections, Richard Littledale has crafted words which not only speak of his own feelings but which also feel as though they speak of ours too.’ - Paula R. Gooder, writer and speaker
