Dancing On My Ashes, 2009

Dancing On My Ashes is a true story co-written by Heather Gilion and Holly Snell. The two authors take the reader through the journey of grieving the tragic deaths of their husbands, from wounded to dancing.

“It was only supposed to take a few hours to scout out a good canoe route. But when James Brill and Scott Nesbitt weren’t back in time for dinner, their wives, sisters Heather and Holly Wall, started to pray. They didn’t stop – even when the bodies of their beloved husbands turned up a day later in the rushing river. Dancing On My Ashes is a true story that details the painful passage of two young widows out of the ashes and into their dance with the Almighty God."
