Editorial Reviews

Review

"A moving account of love and mourning." --Kirkus Reviews

"With a writing style that is as clear-minded and straightforward as it is absorbing, Without Jenny pulls the reader in to family's great depths of emotion . . . . a heart-wrenching depiction of a parent persisting after the loss of her child. --Foreword Reviews

"Mark Gunther offers his readers a meditation on strength, courage, and the healing power of family." --Rabbi Naomi Levy, author of Einstein and the Rabbi

"This novel draws us intimately close to the mysteries of imperfect love and of human resilience." --Catherine Brady, winner of the Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction

"Without Jenny shares the experience of all bereaved parents and can help inform the people who support them." --Janet Roberts, editor, Grief Digest magazine

"So the dead may live on in those who have loved them, and yet, can love ever really be stronger than death? Most marriages fail with the death of a child, each spouse endlessly reflecting the loss back at the other. What is the calculus, the magic formula that can make everything add up once again? The answer this breathtaking novel offers is going to surprise you." --Sherril Jaffe, author of You Are Not alone and Other Stories.

"Without Jenny by Mark Gunther is a powerful story about love and loss, and one family's journey through grief. This is a must-read story that will leave an imprint on your heart forever." --Reader Views

"Gunther's debut novel is part Kaddish, part Cuckoo's Nest--something every seeker yearning for the presence of the empty fullness of reality must read and reflect upon. Joy is the key to the wholeness that might emerge for every one of us broken human beings." --Rabbi Aubrey L. Glazer, Ph.D., Director of Panui; Research Fellow at Katz Center for Advanced Jewish Studies
