The Soul in Grief offers an in-depth look not only at death and grieving but also at love. Dr. Romanyshyn writes about the experience of his wife's sudden death, of her lingering presence, of the unseen world of the dead, and of his attempt to make sense of a senseless loss. He speaks of his well-intended friends who, after a while, encourage him to go on with life. But how does one go on with life when one's whole world is so suddenly shattered? The author relates how the numbness, depression, grief, and despair he feels are slowly transformed as he honors the dreams, reveries, and images that visit him. Describing his journey through grief, the author interweaves his personal experiences, dreams, and reveries with myths, folktales, poetry, and various art expressions. Dr. Romanyshyn speaks with the unique yet universal language of a bereaved heart that dares to delve into the depth of his own pain and existence. Even though the book speaks of death and mourning, in the end, it is a hymn to love and life. It is a sensible and delicate book that will speak to anyone touched by death and grieving. I also highly recommend it to anyone who is at a loss for words when trying to comfort someone in mourning.
