In The Trail to Tincup, Joyce Lynnette Hocker reckons with the loss of multiple family members but shows how love measures the height and depth of grief. She tells a remarkable tale of self-recovery in which lives end but are resurrected through memory and the process of writing. For anyone struggling with loss and the love that binds us to those we cherished, The Trail to Tincup places signposts along the path, shows how to bear both the beams of love and loss, and suggests ways that the distinction between life and death may be less absolute than we think. This is a well-crafted book written by a fine writer who has plumbed the depths of her own story.
