Book Review

Publisher's Note:

Fans of memoirs dealing with the loss of a child (for instance, Two Kisses for Maddy; Signs of Life) will immediately be sucked in by this story of a mother and father in the throes of grief. In this heart wrenching book, we get a sneak peek into the lives of a family who has been torn apart by loss and tragedy...and how it affects their lives and friendships. While it is a sadly commonplace occurrence for a family to lose a child, it is rare for all three of your children to be taken from you in one go. Parts of this book were dark and harrowing, but there were also parts that showed a little bit of hope shining through, even in the midst of such sadness and pain. I think we can all learn a little bit about how much we should cherish life from reading this book. Hopefully we are left with a feeling that we should live each day to the fullest, since we are never certain how much time is left on the clock. Content Analysis: Profanity/Language:  3 mild obscen…

About the Reviewer

Books and reading have always been an important part of my life. When I was very young, my grandma was the library director at our local public library. Years later, after she had retired, I became a librarian at the same library and worked there for several years before taking a part-time job at a local coffee shop, which gives me more time to do what I love, to read and to review books! A few of my favorite authors are Aimee Bender, Diane Chamberlain, and Curtis Sittenfeld however, I will read almost any book I come across! In my spare time you can find me reading (of course), volunteering at a wildlife animal rehab, or hanging out with my two house rabbits.
