I wanted to let you know about this book particularly because it is so very moving. I am one of the poets in “Beyond the Dark Room,” but that is the very last reason to tell you about it.
It is a profound experience reading this slim book of poems, mostly because it addresses the stages of grieving and recovery, but also because of the way it is arranged. Each of the chapters addresses each of the ten stages of loss and recovery in a logical order, taking the reader from Loss through Grief, Shock and Pain, through Acceptance and finally Love.
I found myself moved and permanently changed after reading the book all the way through. I hope you enjoy it!
