Reviews

"A poignant meditation."--Georgia Rowe, Mercury News--Georgia Rowe"Mercury News" (01/23/2017)
"Very moving."--Terri Schlichenmeyer, Wisconsin Daily Citizen--Terri Schlichenmeyer"Wisconsin Daily Citizen" (03/03/2017)
"Poignant. . . . [Should I Still Wish] offers candid insight into the baffling interplay of love, loss, and the balm of memory."--Kirkus--Kirkus
"Beautifully observed and unstintingly honest, Should I Still Wish tries to make sense of a world rendered senseless by tragedy. Its real brilliance, though, is in its interweaving of sorrow and joy, its examination of what it means to simultaneously mourn an old life and celebrate a new one."--Katharine Noel, author of Halfway House

"Should I Still Wish is a profoundly moving memoir of love's recovery. . . . The brilliance of this insightful book is in its honest articulation of great paradox--love can rise complete and uncompromised even as grief endures, and the human heart can belong simultaneously to both life and death, neither of which triumphs forever."--Jonathan Johnson, author of Hannah and the Mountain: Notes toward a Wilderness Fatherhood
