Life without Lisa is a “must read” for anyone who has lost someone dear to them.

This award-winning book is based on the journal that Richard Ballo wrote following the death of his wife, Lisa. The two had been married only eight years when Lisa, 38, lost her battle with cancer. Richard was left as a single parent with sons Nick, five and Victor, six. He had to adapt to his new role as a young widower, writer, father, and a suddenly single man in today’s culture. He turned to writing to help his grief. Little did he realize that the journal he wrote of his thoughts, feelings and experiences, would one day be published and win an award.

This book serves as a beacon of hope for others charting their way through grief’s black waters.

Life Without Lisa is a Gold Medal Winner of the President’s Book Awards from the Florida Authors & Publishers Association, Inc.
