Book Review: Now With You, Now Without You

Now With You, Now Without You

By Kathryn Leith Scott

 

    This is a book about loss and how to go through the grieving process. Although, the book reads a bit like a memoir, it has the substance and depth to help everyone who is grieving.

 

    When we are grieving, we can collapse into a bottomless pit or we can try to cope from the devastating loss. Kathryn chose to try to cope and even thrive in spite of all she went through.

 

    The book takes the reader through the journey through Kathryn’s husbands’ terminal illness and how it was so important for her to make every last moment special with her husband. The couple decided to travel the world. It is a feat that no too many would take. But, it is a process that is courageous and hopeful.

 

    When the time comes to face her husband’s Geoff’s inevitable passing, the voyage she had begun with the man she loved did not end. Kathryn continued on across the world. Through her grief, guilt, and coming to terms of the many things that happened in their lives, their adventure helped her find the way back to her new life.

 

    This book is a celebration of life and how to cope with death. It is about cherishing the many priceless moments that make a life time. It is also about the courage to move forward. This story is for anyone who has suffered loss. It is a firm reminder not to waste the moments that make a lifetime in the here and now.
