Gayle Taylor Davis had it a husband she adored, a life that they shared. Then one phone call took it all away when a policeman on the other end of the line told her that her husband of 32 years had suddenly died of a heart attack. Plunged into the strange new world of grief, Davis began to write to make sense of her experience.

Grief Sucks… But Love Bears All Things is Davis’s personal account of how she climbed out of grief, step by painful step — a no-holds-barred look at personal pain that is rarely shared or talked about. Davis reveals the worst moments of her grief — days of tears, nights of wailing,  thoughts of suicide — and teaches the reader through her example that one can survive the worst.

A brutally honest and intimate portrayal of raw grief in all its pain and ugliness, Grief  Sucks rejects simpleminded words of comfort to address loss with the stark truth: this is the worst pain you will ever feel. And you will survive it.
