Above & Beyond Wellfleet

A memoir about welcoming life after loss

“I picked up my pen a little over a month before my husband died and started writing my heart out; I never stopped. The stories in Above & Beyond Wellfleet are a peek into that heart. A heart which was breaking. This book is about love lost and courage gained. While grief is universal, each response is unique. Grief hollows a person. Just when strength and courage are required, the spirit is frail. These stories are about the unwelcome challenge of learning to live alone—not by choice but by circumstance. They are about the monumental and the mundane aspects of creating a new way of living.”
