A Widow’s Walk

Grief is not something many people want to talk about, and it can feel like the loneliest place in the world. Life will never be the same again, and you have to find a way to carry on and eventually build a new life in the dark pain of grief.

Carolyn had to walk this path when an unexpected accident changed her world instantly, and she lost her beloved husband leaving her to pick up the pieces and face life as a single mum.

Initially, she had no idea how she would cope as the emotions engulfed her every minute of the day, but in time, very slowly, she found her way through the loss, shock and despair, and she found solace in several ways.

Inspiration led her to put pen to paper as part of her healing, and before long, her words began to create this journal to help other widows cope.

Carolyn’s book share’s her guidance and personal experiences and gives you a safe space to reflect and support you on your healing journey. You are not alone.


You can read my full story here, from when I was ten years old and what happened to me. I was admitted to a psychiatric unit at fifteen and continued to suffer throughout my adult life with feelings of self-hatred, fear, darkness and not knowing who I was. I used addictions to help me to cope on the outside when the inside was chaotic. I finally found my healing and had a burning desire to share this with the universe to give love, hope and inspiration to others in pain.

Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass

Anton Chekhov
