My River of Sorrow: A Widow’s Journey with God
A narrative of true love, sudden death, and authentic faith
by Kristina Lunde
This all-American story involves Lee, a golden California boy who becomes an Air Force fighter pilot, and Tina, a Midwestern girl turned Air Force nurse. Their lives are tragically interrupted when Lee, Tina’s husband and father of their two children, dies suddenly. Having adjusted to her father’s sudden death when she was eleven years old, Tina comes to realize that God has eerily prepared her for this worst-case scenario of widowhood. With friends, family, and church support, as well as much-needed antidepressants and therapy, this widow faces grief and battles hopelessness. Tina takes the pain straight to the throne of God and the Lord of heaven answers prayers, needs, and sorrow with His grace, provision, and humor. This account reads like a novel, but only God can orchestrate a real life story like this one. (Cover image by Sergey Peterman.) Available on Amazon in paperback, Kindle and Audible versions.

- Hearing God’s Voice: Joshua—2 Chronicles
- Hearing God’s Voice: Ezra—Song of Songs.
