International Honor for Dickinson's Loneliest Places
Rachel Dickinson's stunning book of essays on grief, The Loneliest Places: Loss, Grief, and the Long Journey Home (Three Hills, 2022) has won yet another international award. Foreword Reviews has announced its 2022 Indies Book of the Year winners, and The Loneliest Places won Gold (first place) in the grief/grieving category of Adult Non-fiction. With over 2,000 trade book entries in the competition, Dickson's work has distinguished itself above all the others. This is the second top Indie award Dickinson has won for The Loneliest Places.
The book description reads: "Rachel Dickinson's "The Loneliest Places" started as a chronicle of grief after her son's suicide, but evolved into a poignant portrayal of heart-wrenching loss" (through a series of essays.) She chronicles her "experiences fleeing to Iceland and the Falkland Islands, and she honestly depicts paralyzing emotions and isolation, ultimately finding hope and making her way back home."
Congratulations to Rachel. The Loneliest Places may be ordered online through book distributors, from the publisher Three Hills, or from the author.
