The Loss World is a personal journey of growth and healing, based on the journals the author wrote after the death of her husband.
With her soul-mate gone, she sought a foundation to mend the tear left inside.
In an effort to remember the struggles and appreciate them for the wisdom they ultimately provided, she accumulated dozens of handwritten journals and stacked them on shelves.
Eventually she decided to read them and found life lessons and self discovery worth sharing with others on the same journey.
The Loss World evokes tears and laughter, along with thoughtful observations of everyday encounters.
It will leave you wiser, sadder, yet filled with hope.
The Loss World is ultimately a triumphant and personal reflection of inner strength and courage through time. Grief is a journey each one of us must travel.
The segments are thought provoking and will open the door to discussion about relationships, and loss.
The Loss World is a beautifully written book that cherishes love and encourages healing in the individual time. It defines the sadness and solitude yet still makes room for joy and humor.
The Loss World is a love story not hindered by death.
Now adapted into a short film "The Loss World Monologues-Snapshots of Grief & Grace" in production with release in 2021

it was amazing

The book lives up to expectations. Having lost loved ones over the years, I found several of the writings to take me back to the pain and sorrow of the past and understanding how necessary it really is to utilize those emotions to move on. It is something I will keep close by to read again.
The Loss World...by Mary London Szpara ...described as a "quick read"...should never be a quick read. It should be read, digested, regurgitated and revisited. Over and over. Mary, you make us feel the pain and loss, then the hope and joy of love and eternal optimism. Well done, my dear!

I sat and read this book in one sitting. Anyone who's lost a loved one will see themselves on these pages and will smile and will cry as you read on. You need a box of tissues nearby.Anyone lucky enough to not have lost someone close will still want to read this because as we read we are presented with a message of love and peace and hope.
Mary London Szpara writes for every human,whether man or woman.The feelings of loss are the same but personal to each of us. Ms.Szpara definately touches the soul.
I think she is extremely brave to bare herself to the world.But what she has written will help bring peace to so many who are in need of peace.
Oprah--this is a writer you need to talk to. Are you listening
