Finding Jill: How I Rebuilt My Life After Losing The Five People I Loved Most
What would you do if you lost five of the people closest to you in an instant? It is hard to fathom such a tragedy or how anyone could go on in life after. Jill Kraft Thompson shares in her book ‘Finding Jill – How I Rebuilt My Life after Losing the Five People I Loved Most’ how she endured the biggest tragedy and challenge she could never have imagined.
Thompson shares her heart with complete honesty and raw pain. That pain is experienced when reading the heartfelt thoughts of a grieving wife, daughter, aunt and mother. ‘Finding Jill’ is more than Thompson reliving her most painful life moments, it includes her thoughts on dealing with grief, learning to love again and wanting to live again following attempted suicide.
While many of us cannot imagine such a loss, we have endured grief in our lives. We may have, like Jill, felt like life was not worth living anymore and wish to be dead ourselves so we could ‘be’ with our beloved who are deceased. Thompson poignantly shares her feelings and the ways that she was able to eventually come to accept the loss of her two sons, her husband, mother and her niece.
You will find practical tips for grief recovery and feel comfort throughout the pages of ‘Finding Jill’ that will guide you on your own journey of healing. The connection to Thompson as she shares about her loss and rebuilding her life will resonate with any one who has suffered loss in their lives. Thompson gives a powerful gift, as she openly and vulnerably tells her deepest thoughts. The gift of connection and understanding, that only occurs between those who have lost a loved one, is something our grieving hearts deserve.
