Losing a loved one unexpectedly and without reason, facing family hardship or a crisis at work are events that can touch anyone of us. But, there are ways to be resilient and to overcome adversity and pain and to lesson the impact of depression In this short book Kevin writes about how literature, religious faith and the love and comfort of family and friends can help one to find a safe shore after the storm tossed seas. While there is no closure - there is hope and a chance to live life to the full. The book is available either in hard copy or as an E-reader (see below).
