"This book is written in a tender manner and is very personal. While reading this book I felt as though the writer was sitting in my living room telling me her story and how she was able to go on after the death of her grandson. It was easy to read and use some of the ideas in clinical practice. I have suggested this book to several professionals who routinely assist family members coping with the loss of a child. I was able to utilize this book by reading parts of it to a family who lost of their 20-month-old child in a freak accident. The family found this book closely matched some of their emotional experiences as they tried to cope with their loss."

The author tells her story and uses it to illustrate the dynamics of the helping and healing processes and illustrates the manner in which grandparent grief is different. The book would be an insightful and sensitive gift to give grandparents who have lost a grandchild. The friends and family of grieving grandparents can gain awareness of what to say and do to help their loved ones. Professionals who counsel or assist families can gain insight about the multiple losses that accompany the death of a child. Grief therapists can benefit from using this book as a tool for grandparents they may see in therapy. Students in the helping professions will gain understanding about diverse types of grief.

I have not experienced the type of loss that Ms. Reed has. I do, however, work with others who have. This book contains much information that could be valuable to anyone who has lost a loved one or knows someone who has.
Besides the valuable information it contains, the book has two other important strengths. First, it contains many references to other books and information sources. Second, and more importantly, it introduces us to an individual we can relate to and care about.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to have a better understanding of the grief process.
Ms. Reed's own struggle to balance the deeply seated need to grieve for Alex against the maternal urge to ease the pain of her son--Alex's father--paints the perfect portrait of the double edged grief that is unique to grandparents.
As informative as a textbook and as heartwrenching as a fine memoir, Mary Lou Reed's sensitive handling of this difficult topic provides a one of a kind sourcebook for the bereaved grandparent.
Bravo Mary Lou!
