The loss of a father, whether sudden or expected, can be devastating. Most of us find ourselves wading through memories and emotions, looking for comfort and meaning. This fine little book grew out of Jonathon Lazear's own bereavement. A baby boomer who'd always found comfort in the wisdom of the written word, Lazear turned to his own reservoir of stories, talked to his friends and family, and mined his bookshelves to come up with this wise and comforting collection.

On Love Alone is the tranquil place you've been looking for. It is a heartfelt collection of quotes, poems, and passages. On Love Alone is a book to give to others when a simple card is not enough.

There's no one way to grieve the death of a father, and while On Love Alone offers some advice, it's really a coming together of stories, compassionate words from such diverse sources as C.S. Lewis and Bruce Springsteen.

"I thought I could describe a state; make a map of sorrow. Sorrow however, turns out to be not a state but a process." --C.S. Lewis
