Kris Carlson had an idyllic life. She and her husband Richard had a romantic marriage, two beautiful daughters, and-thanks to the success of Richard's bestselling DON'T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF series --all of the comforts that money could buy.
But on December 13, 2006, that perfect story took a sudden turn when Richard died-at age 45 -- of a pulmonary embolism on a flight to New York. It was the end of life as Kris knew it, but the beginning of a journey through grief that would teach Kris how much more she could be than the person she once was. That journey is the subject of HEARTBROKEN OPEN, a courageously honest memoir of the two years that followed Richard's death, and the painful but ultimately valuable lessons Kris Carlson learned along the way.
This wise little book offers a message of hope for everyone who has lost a loved one.
