The Way Through The Woods: Mushrooming and Mourning description
When Long Litt Woon’s husband of 32 years died suddenly at work at age 54, the world as she knew it ended. Stupefied by shock and grief, she first sought solace in familiar realms of healing like yoga and meditation but found it unexpectedly in mushrooming. The Way Through the Woods is a unique, informative, surprisingly funny and deeply affecting memoir of finding hope after despair. “I went into the forest”, Woon says “And came out of my grief.”
