Montana Author Writes about Overcoming Grief
During this week of 9-11 remembrance, it seemed appropriate to mention a new book written by former teacher and librarian Cheryl Heser. The Forsyth, Montana, woman lost her 33-year-old son in a car accident. Her non-fiction book, "Walking at the Speed of Light: Reflections for Following Jesus in Grief and Joy," describes how she overcame grief and depression through positive action and faith. The positive action was her late son's organ donation, which she says affected over a hundred people. She wrote the book with short chapters that can be used for daily encouragement for those coping with a loss.
Cheryl was signing her newly published book at Chapter One Book Store in Hamilton Monday afternoon and will be at Fact & Fiction Book Store in Missoula Tuesday, Sept. 11, at 7 p.m. Heser has a Master's degree in writing and also stopped by a Darby school class Monday to promote a style of writing called "flash non-fiction," a process that helped her write the book. She is an avid supporter of the LifeCenter Northwest organ donation center.
