"As a therapist, I have access to numerous sources of support, but when I lost my daughter, reading A Rumor of Angels was the only thing that brought me comfort.”

Launa Nashlund-Jones, M.C.C.C.


"I keep A Rumor of Angels by my bed. For an entire year after my husband died, the only way I could fall asleep at night was to read from this honest and compassionate collection.”



"This is a precious little book. When I say little, I am referring to size, not to content … the book is full of quotations that are nuggets of gold and make it perfect as a meditational work to aid in healing. I kept this book next to my bed and read several pages a night before sleeping.  Having lost my father and both of my siblings within the last five years I found this work particularly helpful and uplifting. This is not the type of book you read and then put on your bookcase to be forgotten, or pass on to someone else. It is a book that can be read over and over to find comfort and help in dealing with the deaths of loved ones. It would make a wonderful gift for someone who has suffered a loss."
