This ultimately uplifting memoir is the extraordinary recollection of a middle-aged woman, who following the tragic loss of her husband, decides to start a completely new life.
Giving up her successful career in the UK, Susan moves to live and work in India where she challenges her grief, beliefs, and courage as she faces the uncertainties and anxieties of a new life in a new country.
More than the carnival of color, curiosities and customs that the author opens herself to, it is the trust in new friendships, the shared experience of violent trauma, the leaps of faith, and, finally, the literal and metaphorical walk-through fire that draws us in and allows us to see how our own fears, injuries, and isolation might be remedied.
“Heart-wrenching and gorgeous. Travels with my Grief documents the transformation from despair and dysfunction after the death of a beloved soulmate to a spirit-lifting journey full of colour, intense drama, new friendship, a foodie’s mouth-watering appreciation of Mumbai’s “tandoori chicken, vegetable Biryani, garlicky black lentils, cardamom and ginger,” and finally, the exhilaration of dancing again. Not to mention the thrill of walking on glass followed by walking on fire. A marvelous, dazzling memoir.” – Priscilla Long, author of Fire and Stone: Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?
“It is so vivid, it’s like watching a movie. Every emotion, anxiety, joy and memories are so incredibly penned down, it’s like travelling with Susan. This story is an inspiration for many who want to make a change but cannot leave their comfort zone. Take the plunge like Sue did.” – Heena Munshaw, managing director, Beacon Holidays, India
“Susan invites us on her journey through grief, as she seeks new beginnings after the loss of her soulmate.” – Kay Hutchison, radio producer, podcaster and author
