How do we fill the empty places that a loved one leaves behind? Five months after the sudden death of her husband from a heart attack, Welborn travels to the island of Sicily with three of her children. Her journey through city, countryside , small towns and ancient ruins opens unexpected doors of memory and reflection. A pilgrimage of the heart, her story speaks to universal experiences of love and loss. Her testimony is a meditation on the possibility of faith -- unflinching, uncompromising, unsentimental -- when confronted by the ultimate test of belief.
"Amy Welborn's latest book is a must-read spiritual treasure. It reveals not only the heart-wrenching dynamics of grief but also the odd and wonderful way grace illumines even the thickest darkness. Funny, engagingly written, spiritually profound. 'Wish You Were Here' is a gem." -- Fr. Robert Barron, author of best-selling "Catholicism: A Journey to the Heart of the Faith."
