Summary

As a result of her own experience with many kind of loss, Stephanie Ericsson offers an intimate, profoundly touching guide for those in grief, legitimizing the complex and often taboo emotions we all feel when loss transforms our lives. In  Companion Through the Darkness, Stephanie Ericsson defines grief as "the constant reawakening that things are now different." Using a very simple format -- which combines excerpts from her own diary writings with brief essays -- she vividly speaks the language of loss and captures the contradictory, wrenching, and chaotic emotions of grief. The book can be opened at any point to chapters no more than a few pages long on such themes as:  
 Abandonment: The sudden state I am forced into. I no longer belong to you. I no longer belong to anyone.  
  Rage: The state I use to survive seemingly moments of intolerable pain.  
  Humor: The backside of agony.  
  Pity: The look on people's faces when they haven't a clue what to say to me.  
  Transition: The moments, strung out over months, when I know I am no longer the woman I was, but not quite the woman I am becoming.  
  The result is compelling, intimate, and heartbreakingly truthful -- a book that promises to be enormously sought-after support and touchstone for all those making their own journey through grief.

    Brenda’s holiday season is looking pretty bleak. She hasn’t spoken to her half-sister, Rachel—the only family she has left—since Rachel stole her boyfriend, and Brenda hasn’t dated since. Now, Rachel and the man Brenda once thought she’d marry herself are expecting a child, and Rachel keeps inviting her over to have dinner with them. Brenda has already turned down their Thanksgiving invitation, but she doesn’t want to spend Christmas alone, yet she’s not sure she has gotten over her ex enough to face the two as a couple. But then she collides with a handsome stranger in a coffee shop and everything changes. 
    Alex has given up on family Christmases and miracles after watching his family slowly get wiped out, his brother the latest casualty. He has settled on living life playing the field, not trusting his luck with having people he cares about stick around. But a chance encounter with a sad-looking beauty in a coffee shop arouses his curiosity. 
    To make up for the coffee he spilled on her, Brenda asks the stranger one favor: to accompany her to her sister’s Christmas dinner. He agrees on one condition: that she go out with him in the meantime until then. They both agree to end their arrangement after the Christmas dinner is over, despite mutual growing feelings of wanting more. 
    Brenda is determined to keep her heart protected, but can Alex hold on to the scared beauty for longer than the holiday season? 
    A Christmas Miracle is the first book in the Holiday Hunks series—unrelated interracial contemporary love stories taking place around a holiday/special occasion.

Joey, however, has little interest in his great-grandmother’s final wishes after she dies—until he learns that she’s left him Anderson House, her successful bed-and-breakfast. But he will only inherit if he lives at Anderson House and follows Sally Mae’s instructions. How can Joey ever meet her challenge?  Jason Stevens knows how Joey is feeling. After all, Jason’s grandfather left him a similar inheritance years before—and his life has never been the same. The Gift of a Legacy reminds us that one legacy can change the world forever.
