9780061732294: Heartbroken Open: A Memoir Through Loss to Self-Discovery

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.

Kristine Carlson's courageous story about loss, grief, and the immeasurable strength of love is deeply inspiring and empowering. --Marci Shimoff, author of Happy for No Reason and Chicken Soup for the Woman's Soul
