Reviewer: Linda Klager
Even though this was a small book, it was great! I read it quickly. I give it 5 stars because of all of God's Holy Word that was quoted within it.
The book was full of wonderful Scripture from the Holy Bible. The beginning of each chapter was beautifully illustrated with a new verse. I liked the font that was used for these verses.
The author covered the grief she felt very well. She used all the senses to paint such a visual picture! She could even wonder what this child would look like at age 17. I appreciate the time she took to describe her journey, and this book will surely help others when they grieve the sudden loss of an infant. "Time doesn't heal wounds," and she used that quote in her book.
The author was a grandmother, and the loss of that infant was so grievous. It was hard for this woman to live without this child. When she and her daughter were finally able to go back to church, they really struggled.
Many friends consoled this family. That was such a blessing for them. Though the path is difficult, there is also hope for the future.
I received a complimentary copy courtesy of the author through Interviews & Reviews for my honest opinion.
