The book takes you through the three family members process of grieving, living again and loving again. You will meet David's mother and father, who help him tremendously at all times. David's sister, Desi, who is a child therapist but always has her big brothers back. Desi's work partner, Olivia, who is also a child therapist and helps David and his family through this tragedy. Yes, there is a twist. No, I cannot reveal it but I really want to. Okay, I will tell you this. When you look at a person, you really have no clue what has happened in their life. It will take you by surprise and rip your heart out at the same time. Yes, have tissues or a clean blanket to use.
This was the first book I have read by Torrie Robles. It is very well written and detailed. You will see each person very clearly and see how everyone fits into this process. Even Dr. Bernstein, the therapist, Robert, David's boss, Bess,Secretary and the two assistants......yeah, there are a lot of people but everyone of them serves a purpose. As an avid reader who lost 3 family members, I felt the pull to read this book. I found so many of my truths that for a period of time, I cried so hard I couldn't read. Then I picked the book back up and finished it. It took me a total of 6 hours to read this, with my break.
Honestly, this book helped me more than anything else I have read up to this point in my life. I was hooked from the beginning to the very end. It is emotional, it is gut wrenching, it is healing, it becomes real and you will understand so many truths. Feel free to let me know what you thought about the book. I loved it! And, I have a special place in my heart for Torrie. This book helped me move on. Thank you!
I was engaged right away. I felt David's anger & heartache, however, I cringed everytime he spoke of how his wife should be here to 'take care of the kids'. It may have not been said like that exactly and I do understand what he was trying to convey, but it was more of a 'she needs to be the one raising these kids' rather then 'my kids need their mother in their life & us as a team to raise them.'
When Livie came in the picture, the times he would try to rationalize his feelings for her by saying she's good for the kids & can help them, she knows how to push me & doesn't take my shit, I kept thinking "oh no, please don't just go for her for those reasons.... Or because you haven't 'had anything but your hand." It was making me not like him & praying the book didn't end like that. I'm so happy Torrie knew where to go with this, because I honestly didn't feel their connection, well I felt it on Livie's end. But then it changed.... for the better! I felt the connection once he figured it out & I'm thinking that's how it was supposed to be. I felt the pain when Torrie did what she did with those damn pencils toward the end (my heart hurt). I Felt the love of the whole family in the end & I truly ended up Feeling the love I have for this book! I have never lost anyone close to me like that or in any way so I didn't understand at first & honestly didn't know if I would connect, but I did and I'm thankful I stuck with the book until the end!
