Openhearted account of loss of child
Date of Review:
Very sensitive story of how a woman learns to accept the loss of her newborn child. Suprisingly open and despite the tragic topic not a heavy and depressing book, but very nice to read.
Bereaved parents can easily become stuck in the horror and terror of what has happened, bouncing aimlessly as they seek meaning, purpose and a hint of a reason to keep on living. Van Praag has brought us a book of action and a book of love. This fine book, will serve well for individual use, for couples, for friends, for groups and in a therapeutic environment.”
