Description
"In less than a year and a half, Liz's mother killed herself and her infant son died unexpectedly. In between these two deaths, Liz was ordained as an Episcopal priest. The Night Lake is the story of finding a way forward through the kind of tragedy that seems like it might be beyond surviving, and trying to do so while holding down a job that's all about leading a community in hope. It's the story of parenting a toddler who is delighted with the world and doesn't yet understand death, of standing in vulnerability before a congregation, and of learning to carve out space for the slow labor of learning to live again in grief. Liz finds surprising solace and strength in running and then racing, in the fear and awe of having another child, in choosing to quit drinking, and in stepping more fully into her work as a priest, heartbreak and all. Weaving through the shores of Lake Tahoe and the streets of Berkeley, California, The Night Lake offers a raw and honest look at the details of a crisis and its aftermath that aren't often shared but that make us human, and the hard-won joy that can follow"--,Provided by publisher.
