"This book is a shared personal journey through the consequences of a devastating loss, the suicide of a loved one. Ultimately, this book is an act of courage, a statement of hope, and a call to personal healing. It is a generous gift and guide to other individuals and families who face such a difficult loss. I highly recommend it."
