Joy in the Mourning
Including Choosing Your Feelings by child author Sarah M. Hunter
Esther Joy Grusing Hunter
Joy in the Mourning is not only the story of an accident that claimed the lives of Esther’s three siblings on the way to their Father’s funeral; it is also a detailed account of the feelings and struggles that accompany the grieving process. It portrays a clear message to those that have suffered any kind of loss, that they are not alone. From the automobile accident, the house fire, and the gradual loss of her mother during the same time period, Esther also shares moments of joy and the healing effects of humor in the midst of suffering.
Esther Hunter’s book is a must read for anyone who has lost a loved one. She knows, she has been there. I especially want to ask all family members to read Esther’s work. Sometimes other family members do not understand the difficulties that one goes through when a great loss occurs. Esther is genuine, and compassionate. I highly recommend this book.
