Sibling Loss; A Sister’s Journey from Despair to Celebration – Lucy Ravinsky
About the Book
When I was 16, my 13 year old brother left the house to go to a baseball game and was killed by a car on the way. The ensuing darkness that fell upon the family ruined many years of our lives. I decided to write a book about it.
My book, entitled Sibling Loss; A Sister’s Journey from Despair to Celebration (pseudonym Laura Prince) is a first-person account of one of the most devastating and least talked about subjects: a child or young person’s loss of a sibling. I share my decades-long process of healing that has been a lifelong struggle. Recovering from the sudden death of my beloved brother over the course of many years, I openly and candidly examine the pitfalls and surprising triumphs of grieving. I am offering you a window into my world to share in my sadness—and in the eventual celebration of my brother’s life as I slowly work my way into a place of quiet joy and gratitude. The book is currently on sale through Amazon. My site; www.lauraprincebooks.com presents a short video about the Sibling Loss. I also have established a blog… siblinglossblog.com.

I am thankful for all of us, for the amazing & enlightening books out there that I have enjoyed reading & consider a huge part of my spiritual journey. And thank you for reading, Sibling Loss….
I must tell you that the old saying “time heals all” is not completely true. To quote Mary Neale from To Heaven & Back, ”When you love with all you have, you grieve with all that you are…”
There is no recipe, and no-one knows–nor will ever know–how you feel, and how you have lived your personal tragedy. It’s a matter of finding your way through support groups, therapy and friendships. Writing is a major help, and listening to others’ stories is also very healing. Whatever helps you feel compassion for all of us, and gratitude for discovering a peaceful place again will help you chart your particular journey to healing.
