A candid field guide to growing through grief and navigating change when life takes an unexpected turn, from an expert therapist and the host of The Curious Life podcast.

Humans are undeniably creatures of habit. So when sudden, unexpected plot twists pull the metaphorical rug from beneath our feet, it can sometimes feel impossible to regain our footing.

Therapist and podcaster Jana Firestone knows this better than most, after losing her mum suddenly at the age of twenty-one and spending many years providing professional counselling to her clients during their darkest days. But in bearing witness to outpourings of grief, loss and pain on a daily basis, Jana also experienced and observed remarkable resilience, transformation and hope.

Sharing her own stories, as well as the hard-won wisdom of people who have been sideswiped by curveballs, Jana applies a warm and practical therapist's lens to learning to survive and eventually thrive during the most challenging days of our lives.

'A beacon of wisdom and guidance.' Chezzi Denyer

'A balm for the soul . . . A practical and powerful guide.' Rachael Coopes
