Chicago, IL, October 23, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Entitled "No More 'We,' No More 'Us'," the book is an unusual true story detailing one man's angry and irreverent struggle with the loss of his beloved life companion.
“If you have lost a beloved life companion,” the author offers, “my earnest hope is that you will find some comforting 'resonance' or meaning in my story.”
The book details in moving language exactly what it's like to lose someone, and offers some unexpected life and death lessons for grieving survivors, and also for those who have not lost a beloved companion.
The book discusses The Soul , “Soulville,” Cosmic Indifference , God, The Death and Separation Protocol, The Ugly Suffer-for-Growth Plan, The Dance of Death, Love is All That Matters, and many other subjects. There is anger, sorrow, humor, and a wished-for happy ending as well.
However, “This book is not for the faint-of-heart,” the author warns, “or for those who prefer not to recognize or confront darker realities of human existence.
“If you firmly believe that there exists a caring, benevolent, merciful Supreme Being, you may not care to read this story.
“Or, if you're convinced that when you die, it's 'all over,' and that you do not continue on as an eternal soul, this story may not be for you.
“If you believe that supernatural or paranormal events are merely coincidences, this story is not likely to change your mind.
"But, please--decide for yourself. You'll be glad you did!"
The book contains more than 90 pages, and includes full-color photos, poignant Love Notes to the author from his life companion, and a Special Guest Contributor.
The Preface and Introduction, plus dozens of excerpts, are available on the author's website: http://www.death-and-separation.weebly.com
