Seeing Through Death Into Life is a firsthand account of Verona's intense journey through the death of her husband from leukemia. Deeply reflective yet down-to-earth, this story inspires readers to find courage when life pulls the ground out from under them. Rylander speaks with unwavering honesty of her fear, ambivalence, anger, grief, and loneliness, and her eventual emergence into new identity and purpose. Along the way she illuminates the challenges of contemporary medicine, explores the potential of post-religious spirituality, and navigates the creative tension between freedom and love.

About the Author:

Deborah Verona Rylander is the author of two chapbooks of poetry, Green Thunder and Devotion to the Unmistaken. She worked as a painter and sculptor in Houston before moving to Boulder, Colorado, where she received a degree in counseling psychology from Naropa University. She has three children and loves to travel, garden, hike, swim, and dance with friends.

Review:

What a thrill it is to read a memoir so expansive on so many levels! Verona Rylander's superb articulation of her husband's illness, active dying, and death unfurls into a wholly original roadmap of inner life. In Seeing Through Death into Life, she brings deep emotional intelligence to bear on her and Jim's raw feelings until suffering yields to mystery. Rylander's finely honed prose and sensuous images lead us through the worlds of domesticity, medical treatment, and personal evolution into the depths of love. This is art in service to the soul. -- --Gail Storey, author of I Promise Not to Suffer, A Fool for Love Hikes the Pacific Coast Trail

More than a story of loss, grief, and acceptance, Seeing Through Death Into Life invites readers to take their own journey beyond the familiar rhythms and comforts of the known into a deeper mystery that holds and transcends both life and death. Verona is a vulnerable and insightful traveller into the uncharted wilderness of her own heart and soul. The questions she confronts are universal, and what she discovers illuminates a process available to everyone, whatever their challenge in life. --Nance Larson Warner, Boulder, CO

This lovely, often lyrical volume is the story of a very personal, arduous, and courageous journey. It looks through the particular events of Verona s story to illuminate what we hold in common. . . . As to the larger focus of the book--her keenly observed journey toward personal wholeness and authenticity--I find both that journey and its telling admirable, a gift of value . . . to any reflective reader. --Travis Broesche, Houston, TX
