Book Review: This Side Of The Dream by Stefani Milan

Heartwarming journey of healing

There are times and events in our life we can never truly prepare for. When it happens, the mix of pain and emotion can overwhelm the best of us—no matter how strong, devout, fatalistic or otherwise prepared we think we might be. You have to go through it to understand it.

This memoir is divided into four parts dealing with emotional, practical, physical and spiritual elements of grief focusing on the author’s tragic experience of losing her mother, her life-altering dreams, intense longing, and signs from her mother. Stefani brings you along with her journey of accepting and embracing the new world. Her writing makes you feel her grief and her pain.

The book also includes her reflections on time, the symbolism of dragonflies, insightful lessons, poems, and deep song verses.
