Honeymoon of Mourning, Paperback / softback Book


This beautiful book is a moving collection of ninety poems exploring the themes of death, separation and bereavement. When a beloved partner dies, a long lasting bond comes to an end.

The one left behind enters a silence, the daily exchange of words no longer there.

Former Waldorf teacher Maarten Ploeger has written an inner dialogue with his wife after her death -- an intimate conversation which offers great rewards for the reader.

This is a very special book which will give strength to those in the first phase of loss, and a sense of wonder and appreciation to all readers.
