Surrendering to Joy; My Year of Love, Letting Go and Forgiveness

On an August night in San Francisco, a 22-year-old named Teal collapsed from a sudden, unexplainable cardiac arrest. Six days later she died, but not before a spiritual unfolding began that changed the life of her mother forever.

Suzanne is this mother … and these essays — each one a personal touch into the divine –chart her path as she confronts painful events she’s been avoiding, and opens herself up to more joy than she ever thought possible. A truly inspiring book for anyone who is grief stricken, facing major life shifts, or simply looking for more peace and joy in life.
