Overnight she found herself as a widow of two preschool boys. Tricia Lott Williford, author of "Let's Pretend We're Normal" knows that when the bottom falls out of your world, you lose all control and power.
Tricia's thirty-five-year-old husband died suddenly after a misdiagnosed twelve-hour illness. She awakened to an upside-down world that she didn't recognize, and yet it seemed to belong to her. Her two young sons were fatherless and a little too fearless, and she needed to learn live a different life than the one she'd planned the day before.
She began to live by a few simple rules: Stay calm, step up, don't put anyone at risk, do your best to live to tell about it, and whenever you can, try to pretend you're normal. Tricia's story is a tender, intimate, and robust portrait of the emotional hazards of living a full life with a heart that is still healing.
