This is a memoir by Jo Cundy, a distinguished solicitor, of her experience of watching her cherished husband, a senior bishop, walk towards death from cancer, and what happened afterwards. It is both cathartic - it is very moving - and comforting, as Jo writes of her own faith journey before and subsequently. Because their joint grief was played out in the public sphere, Jo has some special insights on the nature of public and private grieving. In a sense every death, and every bereavement, is unique. It is familiar, yet painfully personal. As Jo tells her story, she articulates deep truths that anyone following the same journey can appreciate: God is Lord of the unexpected; He provides travelling companions; grief is always public; is there a next, and what happens? How do we befriend our own mortality? This is easy to read, open and vulnerable, but it contains deep and practical truths for anyone walking this road.
