Whether your loss is new or ancient, whether your grief is about death, a relationship estrangement, a move, or the shattering of a dream, any of these 30 stories may have something to say to you. Nancy Reeves' hope in sharing the tales in Found Through Loss: Healing Stories from Scripture and Everyday Sacredness is that readers will grow through their experience.

Growth pushes the griever past limitations, enhances personal qualities, teaches healthier living patterns, and encourages the griever in the expression of their true self - a self that is made in God's image. The grieving people who shared their stories in this book were changed as their grieving diminished. In some ways, they became "more" than they had been before their loss - they were found through loss. Concepts and strategies for healing provided in Found Through Loss can be used individually, in groups, or as material for sermons.

Reeves reads selected stories on the two CDs provided in print version of the book. The courage, the love, and the wisdom shown by these grievers are deeply touching.

Reeves lets the stories speak for themselves with minimal theoretical observation or comment. In her hands this technique works well. The lives transformed by grief instruct and allow for hope.

Reeves’ skill and consummate sensitivity impressed me. We all grieve at different times in our lives, so the book is for anyone who wants to hope in the face of the bleakness of loss.

Reeves' tales are tenderly told and her suggestions for further reflection, journaling, and prayer are simple and effective. All readers will find their experience of loss illuminated and transformed by this wise and compassionate book.
