"How would you feel if I asked you to say goodbye?"

This is the question that 27-year-old Jenny faces from her therapist nearly ten years after the love of her life died in a car crash. A book about healing and courage, Beautiful Thunder is a memoir of a young girl's way forward through dark storms of unimaginable grief.

Years of guilt, eating disorders, depression, self-blame, self-loathing, alcohol abuse, unhealthy relationships, and debilitating fear hound Jenny as she tries to heal her heart long after others have expected her to "get over it." In this stunningly honest and raw memoir, Jenny shares her journey as a young girl on the edge of womanhood stumbling toward her new reality.

This memoir is for anyone paralyzed and struggling with grief-and those seeking insight into how to support them. Jenny's words will bring you tears, laughter, and hope even when you wonder how you'll survive the next day, let alone ever be happy and functional again. Her compassionate, authentic, and realistic advice will comfort you and offer insight into a healing process that can take years or a lifetime. She also addresses how sudden loss and trauma intensifies the conflicts of identity that many young women already face.

Most of all, she lets you know that you're not alone in your despair, and that the sun will shine after the rain.
