A non-fiction title from best-selling Christian novelist Lauraine Snelling, this short but powerful title comes out of the pain experienced at the loss of her daughter at a young age. Through that experience, Lauraine has unique insight on how to help others cope with pain and loss.
We are not taught how to grieve, and yet grief comes to every one of us at some time. Bestselling author Lauraine Snelling discovered this truth when she began her own journey with grief in 1985, the year her twenty-year-old daughter, Marie, lost her battle with cancer. In this nonfiction book, A Hand to Hold
, Lauraine helps us release the fears that make us uncomfortable around those who grieve. She urges us to offer those who grieve the gifts of touch, tears, talk, and time. Lauraine also includes helpful, honest words of encouragement from some of her writer friends, including: Birdie L. Etchison, Mona Gansberg Hodgson, Tracie Peterson, Karen Steinlight, Kay Marshall Strom, and Stephanie Whitson.
Lauraine Snelling is the bestselling author of over seventy books, both fiction and nonfiction, historical and contemporary, for adults and young readers. Lauraine and her husband, Wayne, live in California with a Basset Hound named Winston. To learn more about the author, you can visit www.laurainesnelling.com.
