 Our Description

Wish You Were Here
Amy Welborn

A powerful and personal memoir about what's really most important in life...

In this intensely personal and reflective memoir, journey with Amy Welborn on a trip to Sicily with her three children just five short months after her husband's sudden and unanticipated death.  Along the narrow roads and hairpin turns, Amy shares about the pilgrimage of a heart in grief, the unexpected beauty found in ordinary things, and offers both questions and answers about how we fill the empty places that loved ones leave behind.  Not only a well-told story of travels through loss and healing, Wish You Were Here is a testimony to the truth that faith, hope, and love are stronger than death.

This item received 5 stars overall. Profoundly moving memoir of loss - highly recommended

Veteran Catholic author Amy Welborn’s memoir of her journey to Sicily with her young sons and daughter after the sudden death of her husband, Michael Dubruiel, involves timeless themes – recovery from a tragic loss, confronting doubt at a time when one’s faith is most tested, and learning from the experiences of earlier generations of believers. She embarks upon this larger journey while visiting a land rich with Catholic heritage as well as a more recent devotion – St. Padre Pio is especially beloved among many Sicilians.
The walls in this place are almost bare, which doesn’t help the atmosphere. What little is up there is randomly scattered, askew, and all religious, which does. Help, that is. A picture of John Full Review...
