In today's world, everyone is seeking to understand loss and find hope.

About the Book  

Spinning Gold out of Straw is a candid, honest look at the journey back to wholeness following the loss of a child. As a master storyteller, Diane Rooks found healing in the stories she heard and told. Pulling from extensive interviews and research, combined with her own rich insights, she reveals how stories repair even the most shattered lives. Filled with stories from folklore and personal experience, this book clearly illustrates how to find a life of growth and meaning on the other side of significant loss.
