A Widow's Awakening
Do you believe in soul mates? What if the death of your soul mate meant the birth of your life-long dream?
A WIDOW'S AWAKENING is a fictional account based on the true story of a young woman's struggle to come to terms with the death of her police officer husband who died while investigating a breaking and entering complaint.
Engaging, powerful, heart-wrenching, and at times humorous, this honest look at the first year of a widow's grief captures the immense difficulty of learning how to accept the unacceptable while transforming loss into positive change--and is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit.
