This book chronicles a year of grief, loneliness, happiness and healing following the death of a spouse. In many ways, healing is very much like learning to play a musical instrument or sport, it takes lots of practice. IT'S BEAUTIFUL HERE was inspired by the decision to get on with the important work of living by recognizing and acknowledging simple, everyday beauty...every day for a year. In the end, the book is about changing one's perspective on life.
