“…I can’t stop the grief or the joy so I’m splitting the difference between them and soaking up the moment…”

Hey everyone, Ria here👋🏽 The #adultread book of the week is “Splitting The Difference” by Trè Miller Rodrìguez. I’ve said it before, I’m a sucker for a good memoir and this was a really interesting read. I feel like this book would resonate most with young widows, as the author’s story is about losing her husband when she was only 34 years old. Trè writes about her marriage to Alberto, her experience of funeral planning and writing his eulogy and the weeks, months and years after his death. She talks about stumbling her way though many difficult decisions and cringing at the insensitive and tone-deaf remarks people make about her grief. Her memoir is raw and her feelings are relatable. This book can be found in audio format at Audible.ca and available to order in print at chapters.indigo.ca.

“At 18, Tré gave her newborn daughter up for adoption. At 19, her only sibling was killed in a car crash. At 34, she lost her husband to a sudden heart attack. But at 36, her teenage daughter found her on Facebook and began to reshape the course of Tré’s life. The sum of these milestones is Splitting the Difference: A Heart-Shaped Memoir, a nonfiction work that is equal parts inspiring, irreverent and heart-rending. Through sharply immediate prose, Tré unpacks her experience of being young and widowed in New York City: the “dumb sh*% people say”; the “brave face” she wears to work or social events; and the lack of solace in one-night stands. Her perspective only begins shifting when she spontaneously brings Alberto’s ashes on a trip and sets into motion the ritual of spreading him in bodies of water around the world. Traveling to Bucket List destinations like Savannah, Brazil and Cuba, Tré discovers a strategy for facing her roughest days.”
