Editorial Reviews


"Jackie Hance wills herself to live through unspeakable loss. Told with grace and courage, I'll See You Again gives profound insight into the humanity of grief, marriage and motherhood." (RoseMarie Terenzio, New York Times bestselling author of Fairy Tale Interrupted)

“I was immediately pulled into this beautifully moving, painfully honest, and ultimately uplifting memoir. I found myself fighting alongside Jackie, and rooting for her, as she comes out of the darkness and into a place where she is able to forgive, live, and hope again, and know that our loved ones are never far from us.” (Wendy Lawless, New York Times bestselling author of Chanel Bonfire)

“With sharp-edged observations and a clear voice, Hance carries the reader through the maelstrom of heart wrenching loss to a place where hope still glimmers.” (Jennifer Gardner Trulson, author of Where You Left Me)

“Maybe you don't believe in heaven. Maybe you don't believe in hell. But you will believe in both after you read Jackie Hance's I'll See You Again. Unflinching pain and unwavering hope burn into this story line by line. You'll read this book in one breath, and, left breathless, you will never forget.” (Jacquelyn Mitchard, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Deep End of the Ocean)

“A wonderful and courageous book, I’ll See You Again is a story of unimaginable loss, extraordinary compassion, and ultimately, redemption and rebirth. Thank you, Jackie Hance, for sharing your story.” (Jeannette Walls, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Glass Castle)

I'll See You Again details the heartbreaking story of Jackie and Warren Hance. Their story is one of hope, faith in God, friendships, and ultimately in each other.” (Carole Radziwill, New York Times bestselling author of What Remains)

I just completed this book after purchasing it yesterday. I remember how this accident affected my family, my community and the whole country. Jackie's account of the accident and her life since is as truthful, raw and honest an expression of oneself I have ever read. I had to keep reminding myself to breath while I read and turned the pages. As I parent I cannot begin to understand what the Hance's have experienced and and continue experience. This book walks us through Jackie's unfathomable grief, her decision to forgive and ultimately her decision to live culminating in the birth of Warren and Jackie's 4th daughter, Kasey. I dont think Jackie set out to write an inspirational book but in the end she did. This book is a testament to the human spirit, our resilience and our ability to overcome seemingly impossible obstacles. I wish Jackie, Warren and Kasey peace and happiness. I feel like they are now part of my family. Jackie I am terribly sorry for your loss, but grateful that you have shared your important story.

Like other reviewers, I would start by first saying- if you are looking for a book that is going to explore WHY Diane Schuler drove in an impaired state, this isn't the book for you. This book does not delve into the events of the tragedy. It is a chronicle of how Jackie Hance navigated life in the days, weeks, and few years after the loss of her children. And if you are looking for a book that will help you manage your own grief, this book may be too dark for you to read. It is not a 'feel good' book with an ultimately uplifting answer to why these sorts of tragedies happen. I agree with those who say that this book is very much like reading someone's private journal, during their most desperate days. For me, I could not put the book down, but as I finished it, I felt very unsettled.

I have to credit Jackie Hance with being incredibly honest in this book. She lays herself bare on the page, even when it is unflattering. Yes, she gets angry with a friend for hosting a party 2 years after the crash, and she frankly admits this, and in the next paragraph she acknowledges that she was being unfair. Her husband gives away a bed that belonged to one of the children to a neighbor, and she rushes to the window and screams for them to bring it back, only to later make peace with the idea and tells the anxious neighbor to keep the bed. Her behavior isn't perfect. She's not always likeable. Some of her actions seem very contradictory. She will freely confess how much she dreaded being at big public events meant to honor their girls. She is very honest about how much she fought with her husband. She talks a lot about how after people took her out and tried to engage her in things that kept her busy and took her mind off things, that she came home and crashed into an even worse depression.

First I do have to say that I am so glad that there is a kindle edition!!! I could not put this book down and finished it in 1 1/2 days. I would have finished it sooner but I have 2 children of my own. The book was heartwrenching, captivating, and realistic. There was no sugar coating, it was such a "real" book. All of her emotions, whether good or bad come out. The outpouring of friends and family they have is unbelievable and so nice to know that there are still people out there that do genuinely care.

Very, very good book. I am so glad Jackie wrote this, as she says in the book, everything was always about Diane, her child and the three nieces. I really wondered what happened to the family of those beautiful 3 girls. Thank you so much for sharing with us Jackie.

Persuaded by the many glowing reviews, I purchased this book with the hope that I could better learn how one heals from an unspeakable tragedy. I didn't learn that. The book mostly deals with the horrors of years of depression. Reading the accounts of the mother's unrelenting pain page after page was heartbreaking. I felt like I was invading the family's privacy by reading it. If you are seeking to heal from tragedy yourself, I would recommend steering clear of this book. Leave it for those who want to learn what profound grief is like. If you already know, this may be far too upsetting for you.

Sometimes in life an event is so horrific and overwhelming that the average person has a hard time trying to imagine how deep a pain like this might feel. Most of us heard about this terrible car accident and the three (four if you count the driver's two year old daughter) innocent, beloved little girls who lost their lives and we felt shocked and sad and we couldn't imagine what we would do if it had happened to us. So we thanked God that it hadn't and we went about our lives, eventually forgetting about the Hance family and their three lost little girls. But for Jackie and Warren Hance, their family and close friends, the nightmare was just beginning. I'll See You Again is an honest, in-depth, heart wrenching look at the unending hell their lives have been ever since the moment their oldest daughter Emma called and said "there's something wrong with Aunt Diane".

Reading about the Hance's painful journey is not an easy thing to do, but there is light at the end of this very dark tunnel as Jackie and Warren begin to take those tentative steps toward finding a life worth living again after the birth of their fourth daughter, Kasey. Jackie never tries to paint herself as anything other than what she was... a mother devastated and wracked by unendurable pain who lashes out at her husband whose sister has killed her babies, sobs uncontrollably week after week, who fights to keep from losing her mind and even decides quite calmly that suicide is her only option to stop the pain and allow her to be with her girls again. Thankfully, the Hances were blessed with an extraordinary circle of friends who made it their business for many months to take care of Jackie and Warren when they couldn't take care of themselves.
