In late February 2007, Leah Fishbane's life was flourishing.  A promising young graduate student in Jewish history, she was an adoring mother to her nearly four-year-old daughter and two months into a new pregnancy.  In an instant, all this was gone:  Leah was struck down suddenly with a previously undiagnosed brain tumor--her life ended, her family in despair.  In this deeply evocative memoir, written during the dark time of the first year following Leah's death, her husband Eitan gives voice to the overwhelming nature of mourning, and to the uplifting power of memory. He tells the story of his efforts to be a good father to his grieving child and of his self-discovery as a parent in ways he had not known before. Along this path, Fishbane asks fundamental questions about the meaning of death and life, about the place of God and faith in the experience of tragedy, about what it means to live with loss. The result is a poetic testament that will resonate with anyone who has known the depths of grief, anyone who seeks to console a loved one in pain. In giving honest expression to emotions that are at once particular and universal, Shadows in Winter offers a luminous window of comfort and hope to those battling the devastation of loss.

"Powerful, moving and evocative!"   -- Jonathan Sarna, Braun Professor of American Jewish History, Brandeis University

"This beautiful book . . . evokes the sweetness of life and unbearable loss with riveting nuance. His impulse to tell the story is the impulse towards healing, and he offers help in the midst of even the darkest tragedy."  - Rabbi Mychal Springer, Director of the Center for Pastoral Education, The Jewish Theological Seminary
