The Wild Edge of Sorrow

Francis Weller

I don’t think it’s possible to summarize the impact this book has had on my life.


Each time I read it, it seems I come away with a new understanding of “the long breath of grief” that we all experience as part of the strong individualism that defines existence in this time.

Francis Weller speaks truth about the place of grief in our lives. He gives voice to our silent knowing that “grief is an act of protest”. He provides a guide that will bring us through the shadowy parts that surround us in our world today, so we can find each other as we walk through the “Long Dark” back to belonging, back to community.
