I met Jessie Williams while I was getting new and interesting perspectives on the subject of death and dying for this Headstone series. Despite her busy work schedule, she was very generous with her time, and told me a little about her own brush with grief.
Over the course of the next six months, we chatted on the phone every once in awhile about her experiences. Breath and Bone is a distillation of Jessie's story. It's about loss, accepting mortality, and unbreakable maternal bonds.
