It is hard to imagine any greater pain than that of losing a little child. It is like an amputation, so that though one may learn to live with the loss, the parent is never the same again. In the English language we have a word for those who have lost their parents: an orphan. We have a word for those who have lost their spouse: a widow or widower. We have no word for those who have lost a child. It is as if the very thought is too painful to put into words. This book is an intensely practical book which has as its basis the autobiographical experience of a lovely family ravaged by death. Everyone would benefit from reading and understanding about bereavement, but for anyone in a similar situation to the Bakers, this account is not only a text book but a tonic, and may be even a true friend.
