These real-life stories are moments in people’s lives that show us the importance of forgiving, the tragedy in forgetting and the turmoil of moving on. From a wife in the heart of South Africa, reminiscing on her husband being taken by the river, to an Australian woman contemplating the childhood loss of her baby siblings from a new perspective, or the slow burn of unrequited childhood love in 1950s Canada and more, see how loved ones are honoured in this gripping compilation. Interspersed with apt quotes by people as diverse as Beethoven, Abraham Lincoln, Dr Seuss, John Lennon and C.S. Lewis, Love and Loss is a book that can be read and connected with time and again. Here we can find the timeless wisdom in what makes us all profoundly human.
About the Author
Renée Hollis is an author and photographer who enjoys living in the country. She specializes in non-fiction photograph books and is currently working on a book featuring interviews with people living in New Zealand who are over 100 years old. Renée’s love for pigs began when a litter of piglets was born on her birthday and one was named after her. Then she was introduced to A.A. Milne’s Piglet before getting to know Wilbur, from Charlotte’s Web. But it was a little pig called Babe that captured her heart in the 1995 movie of the same name. Over the years, Renée has discovered that pigs are playful, friendly, sensitive, intelligent animals. Oink is her tribute to these amazing creatures.
