The best book on child loss, hands down!,
This review is from: Silent Grief: Miscarriage-Child Loss: Finding Your Way Through the Darkness (Paperback)
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!
