Songs from the Well: A Memoir of Love is the remarkable chronicle of award-winning poet and author Adam Byrn Tritt’s love for his wife, Lee; his sudden and heartbreaking loss of her to brain cancer; and his struggle to find a way back to life, as told through essays and poetry written during their marriage and in the time since her passing. Tritt’s hope is that his experiences will help people who are grappling with a loved one's serious illness or loss, and will give their friends and families insight so they may better and more fully understand grief and loss.

“So gorgeous, this book! Such beautiful medicine for the human heart. We have lost touch with our ability to grieve well, culturally. We have lost the songs and stories, the ceremonies and rituals. In having the courage to share his own experience of the fullness of grief, Adam Byrn Tritt is helping us to remember, to return to this aspect of our humanity, and to restore these qualities which render it more fully precious and sacred.”
—Murshida VA, M.Ed., Ed.S., Harvard-trained healer, Sufi teacher, mystic poet, and musician

“Grief must be a terribly difficult subject to write about, but the author bravely rises to the occasion. At once heartbreaking and yet life-affirming, this book is a masterpiece of its kind.”
—Wayne McNeill, author, Songbook for Haunted Boys and Girls
