Pastures of Healing
About the Book:
Ciara Glennon vanished into the night in Perth, Western Australia, leaving a family and a city in deep shock. When her body was found, nineteen days after her disappearance, even those with long memories could not remember a time when the community was as overwhelmed with sadness and anguish. A violent and senseless crime committed against an innocent citizen, the details and repercussions of Ciara’s disappearance were unsettling.
Ciara was murdered by the person the media labelled The Claremont Serial Killer. The search to find him spanned twenty-five years. Ciara’s father, Denis, was a driving force in insisting that the killer be found and justice be delivered for his daughter.
Such grief, in its woundedness and suffering, can deliver startling and shocking impacts on body, mind, heart and spirit. This is the story of Denis’s journey and the pathways he found to arrive at a sense of peace and contentment after the loss of his daughter. Pastures of Healing is a raw and intimate story, shared with others who may have known intense grief from a major loss.
