McGoldrick shows readers that living beyond grief means living with grief, embracing it.

Irene McGoldrick’s new memoir, “Two Chai Day: One Widow’s Story about Living beyond Grief” (published by iUniverse), is a true, compelling and gut wrenching story not for the feint of heart. McGoldrick boldly takes readers through a tale of a young mother and wife struggling for normalcy following a cancer diagnosis that ultimately leads to her widowhood.

“Two Chai Day” unapologetically brings readers to the depths of despair and grief as they follow McGoldrick through her life’s struggles. Using unflinching insight – interspersed with bits of dark humor when appropriate – McGoldrick shows readers that living beyond grief means living with grief, embracing it. “The eventual rewards for the courageous battle of grieving,” says McGoldrick, “are ones that no one would choose but are even more precious due to their unexpectedness and well deserved feelings of accomplishment.”

McGoldrick’s portrayal of her grief in “Two Chai Day” is realistic, asking the reader to see a little of themselves in her. It is an age-old story of triumph over tragedy, one that anyone who has ever loved someone can relate to.

For readers wanting to read a story that will stir their souls and remind them of the things that are truly important, “Two Chai Day,” reveals that even during life’s greatest challenges, there is opportunity for warmth and contentment and the joy of simple comforts.

“Two Chai Day” has been selected for inclusion in the iUniverse Star program, which recognizes excellence in writing and commercial success.
