About the Book

The tragic and sudden death of Karen Gruden’s twenty-one-year-old daughter, Taylor, ushered in a long period of darkness for the grieving mother. Years of deep grief and constant pain left Karen certain she was doomed to perpetual hopelessness. But to Karen’s surprise, her shattered heart became a starting point for a new journey with God, beautifully healing and sustaining her. Never Alone chronicles Karen Gruden’s transformation from brokenness to wholeness—from believer to fully devoted follower of Jesus. No longer defined by tragedy, Karen shares her emotional and inspiring story of beauty from ashes, emerging on the other side of grief with strength, purpose, and joy.
