The End of the Rainbow is the heartbreaking memoir and debut book by James Forker.
Losing someone we love is always heartbreaking. We are left with memories, and often, it takes a very long time to process that the person we shared with those memories is now gone. They say that when a person we love dies, a part of us also dies. Our lives are never the same, and because we are used to certain things, routines, and ideas when the person was still with us, the rest of our existence may prove to be hurtful, depressing, and even cynical. It takes faith, love, and acceptance to be able to move on in life. More importantly, it takes a special kind of courage to share one’s journey of love and loss with others. Today, we will feature a touching story of a man who found love and lost it when his beloved passed away.
