I have read this book several times and it has helped me tremendously. I have had 4 losses of my own (still waiting for that litttle one) and can attest how immense the grief is. I have read others books on miscarriage but this is the first one that truly expresses the emotions and thoughts one has as they go through this very difficult time. The author does a great job accurately expressing the different aspects of child loss. What helped me the most was knowing that there were others out there that had the same thoughts I did. There is something about reading other's experiences that helps heals one's heart. Everytime I hear of someone who just had a miscarriage, I run out and buy them this book. It truly offers comfort, insight and hope. God has carried me through so much and He used this book to speak to that part of me that hurt so much! It truly speaks from the heart.

I wish I could give it more than five stars!! A tremendous book on coping with the loss of a child not yet born. This kind of loss is like a stolen promise, the promise of life for another. My own feelings, as a husband have been suppressed to be strong for my wife, this book has help me to greive and return to my God and my wife a whole man. My understanding of why we experienced the loss allowed me not to be bitter toward my Lord, but I was still angry, now the anger has melted away. Clara, thank you for your honesty and transperancy.

This book is the best book I've read since I lost my baby five months ago. I read it for the first time right after losing our first child, and parts of it helped me right away and other parts prepared me for what was ahead in the grieving process. I just read it again, and it amazed me at how true everything Clara Hinton wrote was. It is one thing to read about what might happen, but another to read about what has happened, and for it to be so exactly right on. Miscarriage is a big deal, regardless of what anyone will tell you, and you have to let yourself go through the entire grieving process to heal. Clara, through her own tragic experiences as well as through her accounts of countless other parents' tragedies, tells the truth about what to expect and what to do with the feelings and pain that will inevitably come with losing a precious child, no matter the child's age. I absolutely loved this book, and I am ordering another today for a friend who just lost her first baby, too. This book is also a VERY good book for friends and family members who would like to better understand the grief the parents are going through. I'd give this 10 stars if I could!

It has been more than a year since my husband and I suffered a miscarriage after struggling with infertility. I was fortunate to have found the silent grief website and this book soon after this devastating experience. Those who have suffered an early pregnancy loss know that very few people begin to understand the pain, let alone, are able to comfort us. This book was the only one on the subject that healed my spirit. As someone who knows, first hand, the pain of pregnancy loss, Clara Hinton articulates so well all the feelings a mother experiences. Most importantly, this book will help you understand why others don't seem to share your pain, why your spouse will express grief differently, and how to cope through it all. If you have lost a child, this book is a must read. The author is a strong Christian woman; therefore, the book makes a lot of references to Scripture (a warning for those who don't share the Christian faith).

Nobody can imagine what it is like to have a miscarriage or to lose a child. Friends may try to help you with nice little sayings or with cards, but they just don't understand what you are going through. And that is where this book comes in...
The author has gone through child loss and several miscarriages herself, so she actually knows what a grieving person is feeling. She helps the readers realize that they are not going crazy if they are feeling grief days, weeks, or months after the loss.
Hinton is an authority on this topic of grief and child loss, as can be seen from the thousands of people that visit her website (named after her book) daily for advice and encouragement.
This book has helped me more than I could ever express. As I read the book, I felt like the author was right beside me, encouraging me along the way. Parts of the book are difficult to read - as it brings forth so many painful memories and feelings. However, it helps the healing process so much.
I cannot say enough about this book. It is a MUST READ for anyone - man or woman - that has gone through the loss of a child or a miscarriage. Your only regret after buying this book will be that you didn't buy the book much sooner.

I am one of Clara's 11 children and proud of it! She wanted to write this book to help those who have lost children in all various ways. She wants people to realize that even though it seems like you are greiving alone, you are by no means alone in your loss. Having gone through many losses herself, she put 150% into this book to capture her feelings on paper and for MANY nights she would sleep for only 1 hour and spend the rest writing. She did capture her feelings on paper and I have a much, much greater idea of what people are going through but I still don't have any idea what it would be like to personally lose a child. She gets onto the level of those who have lost children and gives them hope through this book. It made me cry many tears for those of you who have lost children. I hope you find much encouragement through this book.
