Fine Again by Michael S. Vassel asks one of the most heart breaking questions we can be asked as humans. What would you do if you lost the love of your life? How would you carry on and find the right path to walk? Mike has to come to terms with such a loss and he turns to writing a diary as a way to cope with the loss of the love of his life. He must confront grief head on and find a way to move through it and beyond it so that he can truly be 'fine again.'
All of us will reach a point in our lives where we lose someone we love. Whether it is the love of our life or a loved one like a grandmother or mom or dad. While this story deals with a man's journey of grieving the love of his life, the story resounds and could be applied to any of these losses. It can be impossibly hard to work through grief and come back out the other side feeling that we still have a fulfilled life. I really felt connected to Mike and there were so many times where I wanted to hug him and tell him that some day it would get easier, he could do it.
This story will resound with anyone who has ever experienced devastating loss in their life and must find a way to deal with it, must find the hope through the darkness that seems as if it will never end. If you need a story that is deep and uplifting as well, this book is for you. It could be seen as a heavy read because of the emotional story that author Michael Vassel tells, but it is a truly fantastic story of love, loss, and learning to live and love again.
