There are many grief holes.
There's the grief hole you fall into when a loved one dies.
There's another grief hole in all of us; small or large, it determines how much we want to live.
And there are the geographical grief holes, the buildings that attract sorrow and loss and are filled with ghosts.
Theresa sees these ghosts better than most, but can she figure out how to close the holes?
This edition (with spectacular jacket designed by artist Keely Van Order), has six unique, chilling illustrations by Keely Van Order).

Review quote

"Kaaron Warrens The Grief Hole is a powerhouse of a novel; creepy, disturbing, and genuinely moving. Theresas interventions and, of course, the devastating aftermaths will haunt you long after you finish this book. Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and Disappearance at Devils Rock Kaaron Warren's writing is always simple, elegant and deadly. Its like quicksand - a few steps in and you are waist-deep and never, ever getting out. She writes with the logic of a madwoman - which is to say that her words are irrefutable and have the terrifying ring of truth. The Grief Hole may be my favorite of all her books - sentence for sentence, as always, she makes me feel like a fraud for calling myself a writer. The Grief Hole put me immediately into a world I wish I'd never seen and never wanted to leave."" Leslie Bohem, Emmy Award winner"
