A Kiss Before You Go is a heartfelt memoir by Danny Gregory. The pages are from sketchbooks he kept after losing his wife to an accident in 2010. He shares with with us what it is like to lose someone you love.
I read the book with a heavy heart. You can feel his emotions through his handwritten words and the beautiful watercolour sketches. There are his personal thoughts, anxiety and turmoils. It's an intimate look at how his life has changed.
The heaviness also comes from having read his earlier book Everyday Matters that's about life after his wife's subway accident. That was published in 2003.
This is a beautiful and moving memoir. It takes tremendous courage to write about loss, especially when you have to relive it.
