There are some good books directed toward survivors that I would recommend before this one. Albert J. Hsu's "Grieving a Suicide" takes a Christian perspective but speaks from personal experience. It is excellent. So is Christopher Lukas "Silent Grief: Living in the Wake of Suicide." LaRita Archibald speaks from personal experience and working with many survivors, and she writes with great compassion in "Finding Peace Without All The Pieces." There is a bias in it toward parents of someone who has taken his or her own life.
This haunting book will help suicide survivors feel the support of a group of people who went through the same thing. "Children of Jonah" will also help the family and friends of those who survive suicide and those who succeed in taking their life.
This is a very important book. I highly recommend it to anyone who has either tried to commit suicide themselves or who knows someone who has.
