Life After Death follows a family's walk through the shadow of their loved one's tragic suicide, showing how they were able to struggle with grief and eventually return with a zest for living through the help of our living God. This novel reaches deep into the author's own experiences, when her first husband was struggling with a diagnosis of cancer. In Life After Death, Randy and Sally search for answers after Randy suffers for three months with cancer and then takes his own life. Sally feels she cannot be the "super wife" any longer and completely falls apart after her husband's tragic death. As Sally struggles to put her family's life back together, she finds her answer in her love of God. Now retired, author Shirley A. Olson wrote this story after her husband died. At that time she was working as a registered nurse in a hospital. She was motivated to help others deal with tragedy, since she could not find much help for survivors when she needed it. "I was inspired by my husband's braveness until his body and mind deteriorated. At this time I knew that I needed help from a higher power to get through these hard times and that this experience would be helpful for others. This is what inspired me to write this story." Olson now lives in Cambridge, Minnesota, and has been a writer for 30 years. This is her third book. Publisher's website: http: //
