The Cure for Sorrow – Publication Day!

The Cure for Sorrow
A blessing helps us to keep breathing—

to abide this moment, and the next moment,
and the one after that.
—from the Introduction

Friends, I am so grateful to be able to tell you this news: it’s publication day! My new book, The Cure for Sorrow, has just been released today, and I would love to share it with you.

If you live with grief, you know what a wild mix it can be—how terrible and how graced it is, how it opens our hearts even as it breaks them. The Cure for Sorrow bears witness to this wild mix. Every page is infused with the rending, the solace, and the hope that are present in our grieving. The book offers a space of blessing in the midst of it all.

One of the places you can find The Cure for Sorrow is on my website, where we are delighted to offer inscribed copies by request. To order, just click the book cover above or this link: The Cure for Sorrow. (A side note for folks ordering from Amazon: if the book’s page tells you it ships in 1-2 months, pay no attention! That’s a glitch, and Amazon will be shipping them shortly.)

On this publication day, I am grateful beyond measure for your companionship and support that have helped make this book possible. I wish you deep peace and so many blessings.

    Jan, how amazing this book will be for others who are grieving! What a gift you are giving to them and it is not without emotional cost for you.

    Thanks and God bless!

    I have ordered the book a while ago. And am so looking forward to receiving my copy. The writings you have shared recently have so resonated with my own journey which started a June 2nd, 2013 when my beloved Dirk unexpectedly passed away.

    Bless you

    • Jan Richardson Says:

      Susan, thank you so much for the gift of your words and your support of this book. I am sending so many blessings for you as you continue to journey in the wake of Dirk’s unexpected death. May the veil be thin, and may you be met with solace and enfolded in love with every step. Grateful for you.

    Jan, I’ll be ordering copies for myself and for my in-laws. I found your blog not long after your husband passed away. Mine had died, at 49, not too long before. His parents and I have both struggled mightily and I know that your brand of understanding combined with spirituality will soothe us. Congratulations on your publication.
