Jane Williams, "Mysterious Moments: Thoughts That Transform Grief"
Jane Williams, author of Mysterious Moments: Thoughts That Transform Grief, comes to The Regulator for a reading and book signing.
Mysterious Moments is a collection of 10 narratives based on real life experiences of loss from a wide range of backgrounds, cultures, and developmental phases of life. It is unique, compared to books based on stages and phases of grief, as it allows us to better understand the idiosyncratic and often mysterious grief process.
