A violent and senseless crime committed against an innocent citizen, and a father's desire 25 years later to speak directly to others who have lost a child or experienced similar grief to help in the necessary recovery back into their lives.

Ciara Glennon vanished into the night in Perth, Western Australia, leaving a family and a city in deep shock. When her body was found, nineteen days after her disappearance, even those with long memories could not remember a time when the community was as overwhelmed with sadness and anguish. A violent and senseless crime committed against an innocent citizen, the details and repercussions of Ciara's disappearance were unsettling. Ciara was murdered by the person the media labelled The Claremont Serial Killer. The search to find him spanned twenty-five years.

Ciara's father, Denis, was a driving force in insisting that the killer be found and justice be delivered for his daughter. Such grief, in its woundedness and suffering, can deliver startling and shocking impacts on body, mind, heart and spirit. This is the story of Denis's journey and the pathways he found to arrive at a sense of peace and contentment after the loss of his daughter. Pastures of Healing is a raw, intimate, and uplifting story.

One of seventy-plus million Irish diaspora scattered around the planet, Denis Glennon AO made Western Australia his new home in 1974. He spent over forty years in the corporate world, in various parts of the globe. In 1997, his life was shattered when his daughter Ciara was murdered.

Drawing on inner and external strengths, he has dealt with the intense grief of Ciara's murder.

His wife, Una, has written of her own grief of losing Ciara, in her book Ciara's Gift - grief edged with gold (2010).

I found this book to be inspiring. I met Denis during Ciara's wake after her funeral, and was deeply impressed by his courage and grace at the time. To read of his experiences with grief has only added to my understanding of how he came to accept her death and process his profound loss.
