Stroll through three centuries of American cemeteries through photographic images, historic poetry, and memorable prose.
Cemetery Reflections features pictures of intricately carved headstones and statues that vividly capture the pain of grief and loss. It offers poignant excerpts from nineteenth century literature, epitaphs, and sensitive recollections of family losses. The book explores the cemetery as a place of solace, where final and loving farewells may rest safely among the tombstones. The rhythm of the book is designed to help people think about the meaning of their own life and death. It is a book to be contemplated slowly in a comfortable chair in a quiet space.
