When we lose the most important person in our lives all we have left is everyone.

The theme ofAlone on the Yellow Brick Road, a memoir, is the startling fact that people grieve as they have lived, either with positive hope or in negative resentment. But the book, with its metaphysical overtone, is more than an account of life, death, grief, and transformation. As well, it is a chronicle of two lives intertwined for over fifty years. It is a love story

In the short span of nine months, the same time period required for birth, Beverly Kalinin nurses her sick husband and attends him lovingly in his dying. Painful mourning follows and she discovers a startling fact—that people grieve as they have lived. And the rate of successful healing is determined by the experience and quality of one’s journey. Alone on the Yellow Brick Road is a sensitively written memoir of love, life, death, grief, and moving on.

Beverly Kalinin has insight into transformation as a result of caring for her sick husband and handling her grief at his death. Alone on the Yellow Brick Road is her personal story. It will guide others through the difficult time of grieving.
