Publisher's Summary

A rare, wise and important book that explores a subject we talk very rarely about - death and loss.

Through touching stories and meaningful personal journeys, Stumbling Stones examines what grief is and how we can come to live with and understand it.

Stumbling Stones is a collection of stories, case studies and strategies that aim to help people traverse the landscape of loss and grief and to provide support through these painful transitions. With a tone of wisdom and wry, hard-won understanding, Stumbling Stones draws on literature, poetry, stories, observations and reflections to offer navigation through the unavoidable losses in life and to learn to look forward to a peaceful, happier time.

Not all loss is about death - loss can mean the loss of vitality, health, a partner, a pet, dreams, or a relationship or it can mean children leaving home. Disappointment is a also key element of grief. This is a much under-recognised emotion that can govern how a person operates in the world.

Airdre Grant addresses all these elements and offers suggestions for how we manage these times, how we survive and how we develop resilience and understanding.
