Like life, grief has its own set of seasons. We all will eventually face them head-on, in our own time and at our own pace. No matter what our loss, we must learn how to endure and survive our seasons in order to live fully again.
In a memoir that follows the metaphor of the seasons, Ernestine Rose provides an enlightening glimpse into her walk through grief after her beloved husband of forty-one years passed away in 2016. Beginning with the season of summer, Ernestine first recounts the year preceding Art’s death as he bravely battled sarcoidosis and eventually succumbed to the disease. As she leads others through the often cold and lonely seasons of autumn and winter, Ernestine details how she grieved her monumental loss and slowly learned how to live without Art. Finally, as she reveals her entrance into spring, Ernestine discloses how she found renewal, hope, and faith in a new beginning while gently reminding others that we all heal in our own time.
Seasons is the true story of a widow’s journey through the seasons of grief that shares words of wisdom that will help those in mourning to learn to live, love, and dance again.
Ernestine Rose grew up on the west side of Chicago during the turbulent 50’s and 60’s. Adopted by an older couple, she spent a great deal of time as a child reading and participating in dance and drama club activities in school. Bradley University and the University of Dallas prepared her for a successful career as a teacher of English, speech and theater in Peoria and Fort Worth, where she earned numerous educator awards.
As a retired public school teacher and mother of four sons, she made her debut as an author with the publication of three books: 7 Tips for A Successful Marriage, Raising the Roses, and Tales from the Family Tree, all in 2012. She later produced a romance novel, Monday Morning Blues. Her most recent work reflects her experience as a caretaker and widow, Seasons: My Journey through Grief. Inspired by Toni Morrison and Alice Walker, her focus in both writing and theater is on the power of language, love, and family.
