When you're in the midst of terrible depression, the days and weeks can feel like an eternity. From the author of The Long Night comes a beautiful collection of poems and meditations for those experiencing the long night of depression. In Blessings for the Long Night, Jessica Kantrowitz's moving poetry acknowledges the pain and relentlessness of depression and offers gentle presence and hope. This book does not promise healing or deliverance; it is not a guide to praying away the depression. Rather, through these poems, Jessica Kantrowitz, who has been where you are, hopes to sit next to you in the dark while you wait for the light to emerge. The message, repeated and built on throughout the book, is simply, "You are not alone, you are loved, and this will not last forever."
