With Brave Wings She Flies: Embracing the Journey Back to Hope & Healing in Life After Loss by Shannon Hoverson is the author's story after the passing away of her husband, Mark, who she considered to be her superhero. This is not a story of grief or mourning, instead it is a story of healing and joy. Mark passed away at the age of thirty-nine due to neuroendocrine pancreatic cancer. The book chronicles his journey and her journey toward restored hope, genuine joy, moving on, and deep healing. The author recollects her excruciating pain of losing a husband and going from the comfortable space of being a co-parent to being a single mother, a CEO, and a resident of a new state.
With Brave Wings She Flies is honest, raw, and straightforward, and readers will connect with the author's loss, pain, and grief, and the hardships that follow one after losing a husband. Experiencing loss can sometimes be disorienting and might even disconnect people from reality. The memoir has a lot of fond memories of Mark as the author reminisces about their earlier days with sadness yet happiness. The author's healing process will give hope and courage to readers who are going through a similar experience of losing someone close to them as she shares both the positive and negative side of it.
Shannon Hoverson will help readers going through similar experiences change their perception of life and look at it in an optimistic way and appreciate the blessings they have in their lives. The positive vibe she gives through this memoir is infectious and will guide readers to deal with loss in a dignified way. The entire book is filled with warm memories of Mark and she has used metaphors, poetry, and anecdotes to express her emotions, thoughts, and feelings during the different phases of moving on and healing and as a single parent and businesswoman.
