Publisher's Summary

After her mother was killed in a crosswalk, having been hit by a driver who ran a red light, Lori Koidahl questioned, Why me? Furthermore, she wondered, how could another family member have been killed in a car crash? Before she was born, Lori's father died when he fell asleep at the wheel, and when she was 13, her uncle was killed by a distracted driver.

In Garden of Grief, Koidahl offers listeners a look into her busy life as a mom and how losing her own mother and becoming a midlife orphan became a catalyst for rebirth and navigating the world in a new way. She chose to feel, and to honor her grief in a way that made sense to her. In turn, this offered her a peace she couldn't have imagined and didn't know she needed.

In this beautiful tribute to her mother, Koidahl encourages and supports others in their journeys through loss by sharing her own evolution of love, loss, and self-discovery during the most vulnerable time in her life.

A touching, inspiring, and insightful piece.

Not only does Lori share her personal grief journey through Garden of Grief – Cultivating New Life after Loss, but I also felt it was a guide through my own grief. She guides the reader using her experience of losing her mother to lead the way. She reminds us that grief is very personal to each of us and that we should ‘honor’ our journey through it. I listened to her story hoping to get in touch with the grief I was currently experiencing from losing two special pets. As I listened to her narrate her story, I connected with grief from the past I didn’t realize I needed to heal from and Lori's insight was comforting and supportive. Garden of Grief is a well-written story. It is a relatable, enjoyable, touching, and encouraging oral narrative.
