E93: Motherless Daughters with Hope Edelman


"Soldier on" was Hope Edelman's coping method for the sudden death of her mother until seven years later, a broken engagement brought her mother's death roaring to the surface. Hope started writing her New York Times Bestseller Motherless Daughters as a way to comprehend her loss and connect with other motherless daughters. Today we're talking about how death makes us crave truth and clarity, why it's so important to "add the middle" to our stories, and what other cultures have to teach us about grief and loss. Also this week, I'm reminding you that permission to grieve is a practice and reading an excerpt from my new book Permission to Grieve.
