Jane Gordon had it all: the perfect knight in shining armor, loving, husband for thirty-six years; ten beautiful, adopted children, and a successful career as a nurse practitioner. It all came crashing down when she found Scott dying on their kitchen floor Thanksgiving Eve of 2019. In The Missing Scott Chronicles, she narrates the subsequent nightmare of losing absolutely everything in the heart-wrenching first year without her husband.
This memoir offers a raw and vulnerable chronicle of one woman’s nightmare of grief. Gordon’s perilous and painful journey shares a beautiful, prosaic story of images, thoughts, sounds, and profoundly expressed feelings. In The Missing Scott Chronicles, she pours her heart out, bares her grieving soul, and by sharing, hopefully eases her pain and that of others.
