About the book:
Love lasts forever. Love never dies. Love leaves an eternal imprint on our soul and mind. Our hearts need love, in particular, a Mothers love. What do you do when your heart and soul are broken? How do you heal a broken heart? Can your soul ever be whole again?
I grappled with those questions each holiday, birthday, and every day after my mother, Sonia Mercedes Morales Puopolo, perished on American Airlines flight 11, the first hijacked plane to hit the Twin Towers on Tuesday, September 11, 2001. She was a mere two seats away from Mohamed Atta, the on-board leader of the terrorist attack. Her entire body was never found, but some remains were discovered 11 months after the disaster.
My father’s tearful wish that he could once again hold the ring he had given his wife of 40 years was answered. My mothers wedding band was recovered completely intact, still on my mothers left hand amidst tons of rubble at the World Trade Center. It was a miracle!
We all have our 911 moments. Have you ever had a really bad day? A time when you were totally devastated, knocked to your knees, breathless, speechless, simply numb? For some, it is the heart wrenching loss of a loved one, a pet, a job, a lover, or anything that causes your heart and mind to become so overwhelmed that you are unable to cope with basic daily activities. Whether through an unexpected tragedy, the piercing pangs of divorce, or devastating financial loss, the pain and suffering hurt, and for you, it is a horrible, personal 911 moment.
Sonias Ring is a symbol of human strength in the face of crisis, a gracious sign that love leaves an indelible imprint on the mind and soul and heart forever. Love not only survives, but helps us thrive. Within the pages of this book, I share my story, a message I am compelled to tell. Sonias Ring: 11 Ways to Heal Your Heart is for you, a story that will help you find the power to feel love, faith, hope, and perseverance for your own future in todays troubled world. It will provide encouragement that no matter where you are or what crisis or tragedy you may encounter, you can find strength to live with loving kindness and the peace to heal your heart.
