Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lifeboat when my world sank To anyone who has lost a child or knows someone who has, I strongly recommend reading this book as it provides essential guidlines - step by step - to working through your grief. The author speaks from personal experience of losing a child and so do I. Reading this book helped me find my way back to a world of hope, life and living again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This book saved my life After my daughter died, I found myself in that precarious downward spiral of despair that only bereaved parents can know. A chance happening upon this book in my local library saved me. It is a thoughtful discourse on life and what it means and will mean when you do the most unnatural of all things: outlive your child. Not preachy, nor particularly religious nor in anyway sanctimonious, it hits the right note of understanding, compassion and hope for a future that might someday mean something. There is a sound reason that this book has been in print since its release in 1978 - and I don't think it's because I buy a copy every time I hear of an acquaintance facing the same tragedy that my family and I faced 16 years ago this week.
