It was sent to me by the author when I called her at home and asked for guidance.
It has been THE most comforting book to me... Sherokee offers insight that we are unable to think of at the time of our sorrow.
At the time of the death of my child, I had NO idea anyone else knew what I was going through...But someone does.
There could have been no other author, no other book, that could have given me the strength that I received from this.
At a time when I was so at a loss for words, Ms. Ilse spoke, not only for me, but to me, to tell me I was not alone.
Ms. Ilse gave me the strength through this book, to do what I needed to do, and then take care of myself.
This book was an essential part of my of my healing... I cannot say enough about the book, or the author.
It was exactly what we needed at the time, and I thank the author, publisher, and the hospital who provided it to us.

This book was helpful in understanding medical terms and stillbirth. It seemed to lack in emotional depth, but it was still good.Published on Feb. 24 2000
This book has it all. It covers real emotions from someone that's "been there." It helped me to understand and accept my own feelings. Read morePublished on Nov. 9 1999 by ANGIE STORZ (email@example.com)
