Shattering the Glass Heart
Finding the Magic of Possibilities After Trauma and Loss
by Louise M. Brandson, Laura L. Brandson and Rhiann A.L. Hosking

This moving account of loss, grief, healing, and spiritual awakening is written and narrated by three individuals: Louise Brandson, Laura Brandson, and Rhiann Hosking. It traces the aftermath of the sudden death, in a horrific automobile accident, of a central figure in the three authors' lives - a husband, father, and grandfather, respectively. This book as well, is an empowering account of the journey through domestic abuse and ultimate triumphant over the life altering effects experienced by author Laura Brandson and family. Each individual describes her path from the initial shock through the grieving process toward healing and spiritual awakening. This work will appeal to those who have lost a loved one or lived through domestic abuse, and are searching for solace. At it's heart, this work explores the beautiful and mystical nature of life and life after death.
