Companion Through the Darkness:
Inner Dialogues on Grief
As a result of her own experience with many kind of loss,
Stephanie Ericsson offers an intimate, profoundly touching guide for those in grief,
legitimizing the complex and often taboo emotions we all feel when loss transforms our lives.
In Companion Through the Darkness, Stephanie Ericsson defines grief as "the constant reawakening
that things are now different." Using a very simple format which combines excerpts from her own
diary writings with brief essays she vividly speaks the language of loss and captures the
contradictory, wrenching, and chaotic emotions of grief.
The result is compelling, intimate, and heartbreakingly truthful book that promises to be
enormously sought-after support and touchstone for all those making their own journey through grief.
