Winner of the 2023 Memoir Prize for Books from Memoir Magazine and the Christopher Award
A “contemplative, emotional, and spiritual” (Shondaland) memoir about how resilience, hope, and defiant faith can lead to powerful transformation even amid our darkest hours.
Media executive Michelle D. Hord has suffered loss at almost every major phase in her life—the most devastating being the murder of her beloved daughter at the hands of her ex-husband. Yet through it all, there was a voice inside her insisting that she must let the light shine through the holes in her heart.
A timeless and accessible book for anyone who has experienced grief or loss, “The Other Side of Yet will guide you to find the light” (Robin Roberts, Good Morning America). With evocative prose and spiritual insight, Hord offers “inspiration and a road map to help us get to the other side” (Barbara Corcoran, founder of The Corcoran Group and star of Shark Tank) of unimaginable pain. Finding strength in God and her faith, she shares how, while we can’t control the pain or trauma that alters life as we knew it before, we can always pivot to a yet and rebuild a new after. In this deeply vulnerable tribute to her daughter, Hord provides a guide for “the radical healing after loss that must occur as we seek to recover from unimaginable trials and tribulations” (Essence).
The Other Side of Yet is about creating a life of purpose, passion, and possibility regardless of what is thrown at us and highlights how we can face our hardships, yet also choose to keep fighting.
