Must Love Flowers

Grief: deep and poignant distress caused by or as if by bereavement

There is no way around it.  We all at one time or another will experience grief.  How we handle grief is the difference.
Joan lost her husband unexpectedly 4 years ago.  This loss was more than she could handle.  Covid hit and she was even more isolated.  
What happened to Joan to make a change in her life after 4 years?  Joan made one step towards healing (or at least movement in a different direction) that started to change her life in a more positive way.
Debbie Macomber touches on a very sensitive subject.  I know of friends and family who wallowed in their grief.  I also know of others who used their grief, their experiences, to help others. 
Joan found she wasn't alone.  And with this knowledge she made the changes to continue on.
I enjoyed the book.  The characters could be any one of us.  


Debbie Macomber, the author of It’s Better This Way, A Walk Along the Beach, Window on the Bay, Cottage by the Sea, Any Dream Will Do, If Not for You, and the Rose Harbor Inn series, is a leading voice in women’s fiction. Thirteen of her novels have reached #1 on the New York Times bestseller list, and five of her beloved Christmas novels have been hit movies on the Hallmark Channel, including Mrs. Miracle and Mr. Miracle. Hallmark Channel also produced the original series Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cove, based on Macomber’s Cedar Cove books. She is, as well, the author of the cookbook Debbie Macomber’s Table. There are more than 200 million copies of her books in print worldwide.
