When his beloved wife, Barbara, first suffered a stroke and then two and a half years later when she died, Eddie Askew faced grief head on and made something lasting and beautiful out of a tragic experience. His words encourage the reader to take both their anguish and anger to God so that they might glimpse the hope that lies beyond.
Eddie’s daughters, Jenny Hawke and Stephanie Bell, have put together this compilation of his last poems and paintings, together with previously unpublished extracts from his journal, and thoughts and prayers from his earlier books. With a selection of anecdotes, quotes and Bible verses, this book will help others as they travel along their own path through grief.
‘Bereavement is a long road and a painful journey, but with moments of stillness and beauty, and with the possibility of a connection with something infinitely bigger than ourselves.’ Jenny Hawke.
