A record of a journey through grief A memoir by Jo Cundy, recounting her experience of watching her cherished husband, a senior bishop, walk towards death from cancer--and what happened afterwards. Cathartic, comforting and moving, this is the story of Jo's own faith journey both before and after Ian's death. Every death, and every bereavement, is unique. It is familiar, yet painfully personal. Ian and Jo’s joint grief was played out in the public sphere, offering Jo unique insights on the nature of public and private grieving. As she tells her story, she articulates deep truths and asks profound questions that anyone following the same journey can appreciate: God is Lord of the unexpected; He provides travelling companions; grief is always public--and what happens next? How do we befriend our own mortality? Easy to read, open and vulnerable, Jo and Ian's story contains deep and practical truths for anyone walking a similar road.

About the Author:

Jo Cundy is the widow of Ian Cundy who was Bishop of Peterborough until his death in 2009. She is a retired solicitor and spent 10 years involved in the NHS in Non-Executive roles. She now lives in County Durham and has three grown up children and five grandchildren.

Review:

"What comes through is a clear-eyed faith, a sense of what cannot be shaken, a stability that is credible because it is hard-won and a faith-filled embrace of the risk and limitation that is inseparably part of our human identity before God. Jo Cundy is a sure footed guide through some very dark places; I'm grateful that she has been brave enough to map her journey in this way." --Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury

"Letting go of someone who becomes terminally ill stretches our humanity to its extreme. Even more so when that person is a life partner, a leading public figure and someone with a deep trust in the goodness of God. Yet Jo Cundy recounts an extraordinary story of faith with deep humanity and engaging hope." --David Wilkinson BSc PhD MA PhD FRAS, Principal, St John's College, Durham

"Jo Cundy is a person of immense spiritual, emotional and physical courage, and her story will inspire and encourage ... intensely moving ... A story that anyone who has ever lost a close loved one can immediately identify with, but it is also an adventure about life, love and God." --Christina Rees, author and commentator
