Time to Fly - Life and Love After Loss
Eileen Robertson Hamra
Publisher: City Point Press
Reality, as Eileen Robertson Hamra perceived it, was instantly altered the moment authorities confirmed that the plane her husband was piloting had crashed, and he had not survived. With her three young children, Eileen entered the desolate world of grief and loss, but where she arrived was northing short of miraculous.
Between the valleys of grief and the peaks of hope, she discovered that keeping promises to the dead is a lifelong act, and honoring one love does not mean forgoing the freedom and joy that is found in reopening your heart, trusting in new love, and expanding your definition of family.
Time to Fly is the story of how one woman chose to view the tragedy of her husband's death as an opportunity to strengthen the bond with her children, and to wake up her life's purpose. It is one woman's high-flying and turbulent journey to taking full possession of her potential by breaking beyond what she thought she would, should, and could do.
This powerful story is not only for the bereaved and those who support them, but for anyone who believes in the power of finding the silver lining in the darkest of situations and holding on to that sliver of light to begin to turn things around. We do not have complete control over our limited time on this remarkable planet, and so in the time we do have we must hold one another, build softness alongside resilience, and write our own flight plan.
