From the Publisher

Return to Annie Crow Knoll . . . a place where people come to restore their spirits, heal their pain, and reclaim their lives.  Annie Crow Knoll: Sunset is the second novel in this literary fiction series by Gail Priest.  In this family saga, the healing powers of nature, art, and friendship offer courage to those facing loss and grief.

Nate Bidwell blamed his mother Annie for his parents' divorce.  Buried hurts and resentments between mother and son make Nate reluctant to risk his heart when his childhood friend Beth Ann offers him her own.  Instead, he allows himself to fall in love with the fragile and dependent June, and Annie's opposition to their marriage reignites years of unresolved conflict with her only child.  Nate swears that he will never return to Annie Crow Knoll, his family home on the Chesapeake Bay.  He and June move to Manhattan where he opens his dream restaurant and works tirelessly to build his career as a chef. 

When near tragedy strikes their lives, though, Nate is forced to return to the one place he hopes will save his wife: Annie Crow Knoll.  There, surrounded by the love and support of his mother, their friend Packard, and Beth Ann, will Nate and June be able to face their doubts and fears about themselves, their marriage, and their future?

But the book is tough, full of the raw, painful emotions that followed the sudden loss of her husband Dave Goldberg when he was just 47 years old. What followed was, for Sandberg, a process of figuring out what life could look like when it wasn’t at all the life she had planned. The book, Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy, is somewhat framed as advice for people who are grieving. Sandberg, the COO of Facebook and the author of Lean In, recommends avoiding what the psycholog

The Elegant Way Online Social Networks 'Heal' After a Death

Just as life, for many, now takes place both online and in the physical world, so too does death. Social media has brought back the kind of public grieving often seen in ancient Greece—open performances of sadness that bring people together for communal mourning. And a new study shows that the connections made online after a loss can last for years to come. In the study, published in the journal Nature Human Behaviour, Will Hobbs and Moira Burke looked at data from more than 15,000 Facebook networks of people who died (the profiles were de-identified), and a control group of more than 30,000 n

On the Books We Read (and Write) to Get By

Two years ago, a good friend of mine lost her adult son. He was a beautiful young man full of life, energy, and potential, and then in one sudden moment he was gone. How is it possible to overcome the grief of such a monstrous loss? It was terrible to watch this friend try to figure out where to put all the agony and sadness brought on by the death of her son. I felt truly helpless; my efforts to help ease her pain were nothing more than little swats against a thousand-mile fortress. I understood that one does not recover from such things—this sort of grief seizes your life and changes you.
