Stories to Light the Night offers story medicine for children, families and communities at times of grieving, loss and separation.  Stories and words have therapeutic potential. They can strengthen us, help to reframe things, and help make meaning.

With a foreword by acclaimed storyteller Alida Gersie, the book includes 94 stories for: the loss of a loved one such as a  death in the family of a baby, child, sibling, parent, grandparent, an extended family member; the loss of family connection e.g. separation, divorce, adoption, foster children; the loss of a pet; separation from home, country or place; and the loss of health and well-being. The last section includes tales for the loss of nature and ecocide; and stories on cycles of life and change.

As well as many original stories from Susan Perrow, there are stories from different countries and cultures worldwide by writers from a diversity of professions and backgrounds. Each story includes a description of who the story was written for, the age group and the situation. Using the power of metaphor and imaginative story journeys, combined with the sensitive art of ‘listening’, the stories in the collection offer a light in the night.
