“This book was a lifeline for me right after my loss. When I found I couldn't get myself out of bed or to focus on anything else, I would grab this book and read a few pages here and there. It talked me through various stages of grief, softened some of my guilt, and made me feel connected to other loss parents by way of their personal quotes included in the book.”
