"Grieving is as natural as breathing, for if we have lived and loved, surely we will grieve...?" Nancy Cobb meets death in the most vital of places-in the lives of everyday people-and in doing so has found a way to infuse this darkest subject with light. Her candor and refreshing perspective make the deaths of those she has loved-and death itself-a subject to explore rather than to avoid. Cobb's personal experiences become a point of departure for what amounts to a longer conversation about loss. In telling stories about encounters with grief, Cobb opens us up to our own experiences, and she encourages us to accept and honor the "divine intersections" where the living meet the dying. From the Trade Paperback edition.
