Carol Henderson tells the spellbinding story of how her one-day writing workshop for bereaved mothers turned into an ongoing journey of self-discovery and healing for 13 women who had lost children. Each woman brought to the group a powerful story of loss and bereavement, and each discovered the sustaining power of reflective writing. The womens stories, harrowing and poignant, are rendered both by Henderson and by the women themselvesthe book includes generous portions of their own writing. Farther Along is at once the history of an evolving writers group, and a detailed guide for group leaders and facilitators who are interested in using writing as a tool for healing.
