My Husband is Not a Rainbow

My Husband is Not a Rainbow


From TEDx speaker, writer, and involuntary widow, Kelley Lynn, comes the real life story of love, loss, and what happens when your husband leaves for work one ordinary Wednesday and never comes home. In "My Husband Is Not a Rainbow," Lynn gives you a front row seat into the grief tsunami (please don't call it a 'journey') that busted through her young and happy marriage, shattering her world to pieces, and stealing the only life she knew. This brutally raw and often hilarious peek into one woman's brave struggle in the aftermath of her husband's death, and the beautiful love between them that started it all, will have you laughing, crying, and re-thinking everything you thought you knew about life, love, grief, and loss. Written in real time and told through poetry, journal entries, Facebook posts, grief-counseling session snippets, and letters to her dead husband, "Rainbow" will have you falling in love with love, while simultaneously feeling validated in your own personal grief tsunami. "My Husband Is Not a Rainbow" is for anyone who has ever felt lost, hopeless, and alone in times of grief. It is for anyone who has ever loved someone, and then had to figure out what life looked like without them here on earth. It is for anyone who has taken pain and turned it into purpose, and anyone courageous enough to keep on living, even while having the knowledge that people will keep on dying.
