Just Because - Love Loss Renewal
'Why did they die? Why now? Why am I still alive when they are not? Just Because?'
The life changing moment when Lisa's 21-year-old sister Zoie and Zoie's 29-year-old partner James, died in a shocking car accident, is now memorialised by a beautiful oak tree.
Lisa then lost her 31-year-old husband Andrew to suicide, and her 32-year-old younger brother Justin to brain cancer. Why can life be so brutal?
Faced with compounded grief from the untimely death of loved ones, as well as a myriad of other losses, Lisa embarked on a journey of self-healing and renewal.
Just Because acts as a measure of wisdom about the often unspoken but universal topics of loss and grief, depression, suicide, miscarriage, and Alzheimer’s Disease. These candid pages offer comfort, warmth, honesty, hope and humour, as well as strategies for healing in the belief that loss and grief do change your life, but they do not define you.
Just Because is a self-help memoir infused with unwavering accounts of how all sense of meaning in life may be lost, but we can manage our loss and grief to reshape and renew our own lives.
Just Because is available in November 2022.
Just Because is a fully revised and retitled edition of a book previously self-published in 2018.
