Flor Schmidt

Further Than the End

How Something New Began with the Death of My Son

When her 17-year-old son dies in a traffic accident, Flor Schmidt realizes that the extremes of life are often unbelievably close to each other: Death, horror and pain on the one hand – grace, happiness and love on the other. On her path through the grief, she searches for answers that cannot exist and ultimately finds something that is much more valuable: an intensive inner connection to her deceased son, which helps her to accept life and love it as it is. And the trust that death is not just an end but can also be a new start.

  • A courageous path through grief
  • Told in a sensitive and stirring way
  • An affirming book for everyone who has lost someone close to them
