Hesperia, CA Author Publishes Memoir

By: PR Leap
( Life After Suicide: A spouse's journey, a new book by Rosemarie James, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

After years of struggling with alcohol addiction, Rosemarie James's husband lost his battle to suicide. A happy-go-lucky man, friend, beloved stepparent, grandparent, and spouse, he fell into a cycle in which he felt there was no escape and left his loved ones behind. Now Rosemarie is left to pick up the pieces and find ways to put herself and her life together again.

Suicide of a loved one is often met with feelings of guilt, from within and from others. As a spouse, there is often an overwhelming feeling of shame. Feeling alone with few who have experienced her specific type of loss, Rosemarie set out to create a guide through the grief for others who have lost their spouses to suicide. Guiding through the stages of grief and providing insight on helpful tools to continue on, Life After Suicide is more than just a resource; it is a reminder you are not alone in your heartbreak, and others are out there who are willing and able to guide you through the dark. Rosemarie's example is proof that tragedy does not define you, but who you become after.
