A Father's Journey Through Loss By Leonard Fein (176 Pages)Publisher: Jewish Lights, 2001
How do you explain a seemingly senseless tragedy? What does it mean to be an observer of your own life?" "In this unusual exploration of heartbreak and healing, Leonard Fein chronicles the sudden death of his 30-year-old daughter and shares the hard-earned wisdom that emerges in the face of loss and grief. With the rich support of his community, Fein anguished, questioned, and ultimately coped with the death of his daughter by wrestling with some of life's toughest questions. The answers he discovers in the course of his own mourning process provide not only comfort to others in "the company of the bereaved" and strength to those who face personal tragedy, but also wisdom for all who search for life's meanings. This volume leads us to a different, surprising realization of the gifts that life and the quest for understanding have to offer.
