Hello, I’m Jacqueline Charmane, Certified Grief Counselor and Author of the best-selling book, Holidays Without You: Finding the Meaning Again. In my many years of counseling, I have discovered there is no precise way to grieve. However, there is one common factor in grief. The holidays tend to be a difficult time for those mourning the loss of a loved one. Regardless, if you grieve from a death, divorce, children leaving home, or imprisonment, it can be very devastating. Well, I have GREAT NEWS! Holidays may be joyous again by understanding the components that make up that joy. This realistic fiction brings back memories of the good ole days. The food, laughter, discussions of life, and hopes for the future are all part of the amusement shared during holidays. Do not go another day dreading holidays. Read the book to rekindle your happiness before the next holiday you loved passes.
