I cried through at least the first half of the book. I put myself in her shoes while reading her words and I just fell apart. I couldn't imagine losing my husband and have to pull myself together in order to take care of my children. If I had to deal with some of the unkind and uncaring things some of the people in her life said to her during the early stages of her grief, I wouldn't have been able to handle it with the grace she portrayed in the book.
The Easton family story is one that offers hope...there is a light at the end of the tunnel after the death of a core member of your family. It shows the grieving process is different for every individual and that's okay. It's as it should be.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who has suffered such a loss or knows of anyone who has. If you didn't understand their grief before, you will after reading Free Fall.
I thank both Ms. Easton and her children for going public with their experience. It's through this shared experience that we can profit and learn from the worst experiences we might ever face. I send them all my respect and love for continued healing.
(Spoiler alert) It was heart wrenching to read of the suffering she endured and the insensitivity of friends and family throughout the ordeal. The story is told amazingly well, but as a voracious reader of memoir, what struck a chord with me the most was how honest it came across and how much the author felt like someone I understood and could relate to. She feels compelled to travel to escape to a place where people don’t identify her by the tragedy she’s experienced. That’s exactly the way I felt after my divorce. Many friends stopped calling because they weren’t comfortable dealing with her once she was unhappy and vulnerable. Again, I have experienced this.
Her anger over her husband’s abandonment of them warred with her deep and never-ending love for him and that, too, really felt real and believable. This is a story that could help anyone suffering from a loss of any kind. Hopefully, it might also help people to treat others enduring the loss of a loved one no matter what the circumstances in a more compassionate manner.
