Oceans of Sorrow, a new book by Debra Marvel, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Debra Marvel lost her husband, the love of her life, at twenty-one. Oceans of Sorrow is her mediation on grief and loneliness as a young widow.

Death is not final for those who love. Because love still exists after death, therefore life exists after death. We only grieve so because we must wait to join those we love.

She captures the struggle of love the delicate balance of remembering a loved one while avoiding places and objects that are still too painful to face. While words and memories will never replace a presence, writing can be both a release and a comfort. Oceans of Sorrow will remind those who suffer that they are not alone.
