From the creators of the popular podcast Good Mourning, this support-group-in-a-book helps readers navigate grief and loss with warmth, humour, raw honesty and the affirmation that they are not alone.
Sally Douglas and Imogen Carn met after the sudden deaths of their mothers only months apart. Launching a podcast soon after, their no-holds-barred, relatable approach to talking about grief immediately sparked an engaged and growing community.
In Good Mourning, Sal and Im talk candidly about what grief's really like, from the exhaustion to anxiety, ugly cries to 'grief face', loneliness to brain fog. Joined by a chorus of others who share their words and insights on grief in all its forms, along with expert advice from clinical psychologist Tamara Cavenett, Sal and Im help readers begin to move through grief, whether you're one month in or ten years down the track (because there's no time frame to healing).
Good Mourning reminds us that even in the midst of unimaginable grief, there can also be light. And while there is no magic wand to simply 'get over' your loss, there are ways to heal around it, learn to accept it as a new part of yourself and keep your loved one's memory alive.
