by Suzanne Falter
On an August night in San Francisco, 22-year-old Teal collapsed from a sudden, unexplainable cardiac arrest. Six days later she died, and a spiritual unfolding began that changed the life of her mother forever. These essays – each one a personal touch into the divine – chart her mother’s path as she confronts painful events she’d been holding onto, and opens herself up to true, lasting joy.
