When a mother or father dies, the mystery of life reveals itself to us. It is precisely in the moments when we are most human, most in touch with what binds us together, that we discover the hidden depth of life. - Henri J.M. Nouwen. In this intimate, deeply touching account of his mother's death, Henri Nouwen offers a gentle invitation to all those in grief to open themselves to a deeper sense of faith and trust in God. Writing with his characteristic simplicity and honesty, Nouwen shares his own experience of the pain, confusion, and doubt that all those in grief experience. More importantly, he leads the reader to recognize that despite all the turmoil surrounding the death of a loved one, God is present.
