The Tears of God is a heartfelt elegy and a deep exploration of faith—faith in one’s self, in others, and in God. It ponders the death of a loved one and the grief that follows, a mixture of anger and love that strives for reconciliation with one’s own family history. In these pages you’ll discover many haunted lives trying to find and sustain a brighter sense of life and purpose. You’ll read about struggles with addiction and recovery, and the redemptive powers of art. The body’s mortality and the eternal life of the spirit are in constant conversation here, reflected in the book’s wide cast of angry, quirky, stubborn characters.
Illustrated with original watercolor paintings.
