A memoir by Jo Cundy, of her experience of watching her cherished husband, a senior bishop, walk towards death from cancer, and what happened afterwards. Cathartic, comforting and moving, Jo writes of her own faith journey both before and after Ian's death. Every death, and every bereavement, is unique. It is familiar, yet painfully personal. Ian and Jo's joint grief was played out in the public sphere offering Jo unique insights on the nature of public and private grieving. As she tells her story, she articulates deep truths that anyone following the same journey can appreciate: God is Lord of the unexpected; He provides travelling companions; grief is always public; and what happens next? How do we befriend our own mortality? This story is easy to read, open and vulnerable, but it contains deep and practical truths for anyone walking a similar road.
