Just Because - Love Loss Renewal
The life changing moment when Lisa’s 21-year-old sister Zoie, and Zoie’s 26-year-old partner James, died in a shocking car accident, is now memorialised by a beautiful oak tree. But Lisa then lost her 31-year-old husband Andrew to suicide, and her 32-year-old younger brother Justin to brain cancer. 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.
She is now an accidental expert on loss and grief.
Just Because acts as a measure of wisdom about the often unspoken but universal topics of loss and grief, depression, suicide, miscarriage, Alzheimer’s Disease and the loss of a loved one to COVID-19. These candid pages offer comfort, warmth, honesty, hope and humour, as well as strategies for healing in the belief that loss and grief 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.
