"A Crocus in Winter is a feast for the eyes! This extraordinary book is an artistic and tender account of a life transition inevitably experienced by every human being - recovery from the loss of a loved one. In here those profound emotions are expressed in beautiful and provocative ways, with humor and wit thrown in when it's needed most. As an accomplished artist, Andi's paintings and prose permit the reader to easily identify with each image and verse. Only through expressing her naturally born creativity was she able to manage the most challenging time in her life, the loss of her adored husband, famous singer and songwriter, Dan Seals. She shares her process to inspire others to seek their own ways of coping with their own loss. A perfect book for anyone who experiences loss, in whatever form it comes.
