    I won this in a First Reads drawing, and I certainly hope I never need it. This book is a slim book, though it effectively covers a grim topic. Actual content is a mere 100 pages, and bibliography/sources/index is another 20 or so. The author lost her daughter at age 15 after a tragic motorcycle crash, and this book covers the grief process of a parent following a loss of a child. Her own story is in the introduction, but afterward there are ten chapters full of tips and approaches as to how to I won this in a First Reads drawing, and I certainly hope I never need it.

Her own story is in the introduction, but afterward there are ten chapters full of tips and approaches as to how to work through the grief. The book maintains a Christian perspective, and she has a considerable bibliography and other resources in the back of the book. While it does maintain a Christian perspective, the author's Christianity doesn't totally pervade the book, which is good because it's probably normal for grieving parents to be angry at or doubtful of God. By skipping the last couple of paragraphs of each chapter or subsection, you can bypass most of the Christian perspective. This book would be a good resource for a bereavement group.

    A friend loaned me this book, believing it may help me to come to terms with the loss of my son earlier this year. This book gave me great comfort in knowing that my thoughts and feelings are not out of the ordinary. I would recommend this book for anyone to read and although it is a great help for those who are grieving over the loss of their child, it would also give those who haven't a greater understanding.

    I won this book through a Goodreads giveaway. I've known a lot of people who have lost a child, and I wanted to read this so I could get a better understanding of what they are going through and how to help them. I thought Ms. Sawyers-Kurz did a wonderful job of explaining the steps that everyone goes through when they grieve, not just those who have lost a child. Her suggestions were practical and helpful.

    Anyone who has lost a child should read this book. Nothing can make such a loss better but this book offers many coping mechanisms to help.
