It will help you heal wounds and remind you that you aren't alone. Jessica Kantrowitz has given us a very precious gift--may we accept the invitation to receive it." --Kaitlin Curtice, author of Glory Happening: Finding the Divine in Everyday Places and Native: Identity, Belonging, and Rediscovering God "Highly recommended for readers seeking spiritual, mindful approaches to depression, with clear, simple coping strategies." --Library Journal"To me, the only thing more ridiculous than tragedy is when someone offers a suffering soul a book to pacify their pain. But now I will be that someone. Because Kantrowitz isn't offering a book here. She is offering herself." --Matt Bays, author of Finding God in the Ruins"In The Long Night, Jessica Kantrowitz has found a way to embody the compassionate presence of a friend, providing balm and hope for each of us resolving to take one more step toward the dawn." --Emmy Kegler, author of One Coin Found"The Long Night taps into the power of human resilience, the power of feeling unalone, the power of removing the stigma around mental health. It is my greatest hope that the world will embrace this as a beloved companion for life's heartaches." --Rachel Macy Stafford, New York Times bestselling author, speaker, and certified special education teacher "The Long Night offers a theology of beautifully inclusive acceptance and a sense of community that is its own gift of healing. I am grateful this book exists in our world." --Joy Jordan-Lake, Ph.D., author of A Tangled Mercy; Why Jesus Makes Me Nervous; and other books
