"Twenty-four-year-old Natalie Taylor was leading a charmed life: she had a fulfilling job as a high school English teacher, a wonderful husband, Josh, a new house, and a baby on the way. Then, while visiting her sister, she gets the news that Josh has died in a freak accident. Four months before the birth of her son, Natalie is leveled by loss. What follows is an unexpected transformation as Natalie calls upon resources she didn't even know she had in order to reimagine and rebuild a life for her and her son. Natalie finds herself drawing insight and inspiration--from her beloved authors like J.D. Salinger and Alice Walker to radio personalities like Ira Glass and Dr. Joy Browne--and in so doing, she assembles her own unique team to pull her out of the clutches of grief. With the strength and support of her quirky family and friends and her imaginary fairy godmother who guides her grieving, Natalie embarks on an unforgettable journey to find life again after loss"--P. [4] of cover.

A beautiful, heart-wrenching story told with honesty, truth and humour. I found myself smiling and laughing through my tears.
