A Grief ObservedC S Lewis
In this highly personal account, C S Lewis relates his experience of intense grief - his "mad midnight moment" - after the death of his wife Joy. With candour and insight, Lewis reflects on the faith-shaking effects of bereavement, and affirms the enduring power of God's steadfast love.
A Grief Observed comprises the reflections of the great scholar and Christian on the death of his wife after only a few short years of marriage. Painfully honest in its dissection of his thoughts and feelings, this is a book that details his paralysing grief, bewilderment and sense of loss in simple and moving prose.
