Has life kicked you in the shins? Did your worst nightmare come true? Do you feel rushed to be okay? This book is for you.
Nora McInerny suffered the loss of her father, her husband, and her unborn second child in one year. This is her memoir of building something new from what was left behind of that tragic year. She's remarried now and has four children ages 16 months to 16 years, but this is her memoir about Chapter Two. Life after the tragedy.
It's funny and messy and painful and hopeful. This is a book about the space between the grief of a tragedy and the silver lining, the happy ending. So many books try to rush us into being okay, but McInerny shows us how to sit in the grief. How to be brave enough to not be okay for a while. And she also shows us how to laugh while we're waiting.
She is the host of Terrible, Thanks for Asking, a podcast about how we deal with bumps in the road and tragedies, and she is the author of It's Okay to Laugh.
