After losing Allie, her only daughter, author Dayle E. Spencer was inspired to write about her intensely personal journey through loss and its aftermath. This resulted in the composition of her new book, “Loving Allie: Transforming the Journey of Loss” (published by Balboa Press), where Spencer details how she regained the joy and love in her life after such a devastating loss.

“Loving Allie” chronicles the impact Allie’s passing had on those who loved her. Spencer provides a fast-paced, brutally honest account of the moments following the death of a loved one, identifying the ways she dealt with the grieving process and ultimately moved on from a place of suffering to one of hope and peace.

“The death of someone we love presents an opportunity for us to make critical choices about our lives thereafter,” Spencer says. “Do we choose to see ourselves as victims? Do we choose to see the death as tragic?”

According to Spencer, these two choices have a direct impact upon our ability to recover from loss.

Spencer wants her readers to know that they are not powerless when they suffer a major loss in life, but that they have the capacity to learn from the experience of loss and emerge stronger in their broken places.
