By way of disclosure, Ms. Logan and I were co-workers for many years. I was present or nearby when some of the events she describes occurred. I can tell you that her narrative is faithful to the facts as I know them.
It will be immediately apparent to the reader that Ms. Logan is firmly anchored in the Christian faith in which she was raised. She really knows her scriptures. However, non-Christians and non-religious people can still learn a lot from this book, as I will describe.
One of the strengths of this book is the detail that Ms. Logan goes into, covering everything from the dissolution of her marriage, to the decorations of her daughter's room, to the reactions of family and friends, all of it told in a direct, matter-of-fact manner. Not all of it is pretty. But, because of the detail, we are able to follow the transmutation of many very complicated emotions into a desire to memorialize her daughter and her brief life by helping other parents who have experienced the same or similar losses. Thus we see the genesis of Kayla's Village. There are times in the narrative, particularly when Ms. Logan is meditating on Scripture and how all of this fits into God's plan for her, that she verges on the lyrical. All of it is for real and, throughout, Ms. Logan's utter sincerity shines brightly.
The book will be a great help to those who have suffered a similar loss, their friends and family, and people who just interested in the grieving process and how people deal with loss. It will come as no surprise that Ms. Logan now works professionally with parents and families who have experienced this kind of loss.
