If you’re struggling through grief and bereavement from the loss of someone you love, then you will take tremendous comfort in reading this New Edition of “Heartbroken Open” – by international bestselling author Kristine Carlson. This inspiring true story was so loved by the Lifetime movie network, that it became the inspiration for the empowering movie: “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff: The Kristine Carlson Story.” This poignant book will help you, your friend or family members navigate through the stress of loss – move through the heartbreak of grief – and then ultimately return to love and joy again.
The story begins with Kristine Carlson living an idyllic life. She and her husband, Richard, had a romantic marriage, two beautiful daughters, and—thanks to the success of Richard’s bestselling Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff series—all the comforts of the American Dream. But on December 13, 2006, that perfect story took a sudden turn when, on a typical flight to New York, a pulmonary embolism would take Richard’s life, catapulting Kristine into heartbreak and uncertainty. It was the end of life as Kristine knew it – and the beginning of a journey through the depths of grief and mourning that would reveal to Kristine her true strength and immeasurable love that cannot be broken.
