5.0 out of 5 stars Five Cries of Grief Jan. 14 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
My mother and my oldest son (who was 24 years old)were killed in an automobile accident seven months ago. Most books I have read on coping with the death of a child have been written by parents who have lost much younger children. In this book the child was 25 years old. I was able to relate to the parents who were the authors of this book. I recommended this book to a friend who wanted to purchase a book for a loved one who had lost a child. I also plan to purchase additional copies of this book to give to others who have lost a child. If you have lost a child, particularly an adult child, I highly recommend this book.

The Strommens really allow you to share in their journey through grief. It allowed me to get an insight of what my parents were going through after our loss of my brother. This book is truly inspirational, open, loving, and healing! The Lord truly blessed me with through the sharing of their experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Men Who Can't Get Into Other Grief Books Sept. 13 2008
By Alyice Edrich - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
What I love about this book is that it takes a HE said/ SHE said approach. The book is written by parents who lost a 25 year old son and each has a voice to share.

The chapters alternate between the father's journal and the mother's journal, with each realizing that the pains and how they deal with the loss are so completely different.

This is the only book my husband was able to relate to, as it came from a father's view, didn't appear to be all mushy and was not preachy.

Although I wish I'd never had to seek out books on grief, I have read a few since the death of my son. This book is by far the best. I recommend it to anyone dealing with the death of a family member.

This one was so-so for me when I lost my second child. It was written differently from any of the other books. It dealt with the loss of only one child, but from five viewpoints---the mother, the father, a sibling, a grandparent, etc. I was really only interested in the grief of a mother---I was pretty self-involved when my world came crashing down, I'm afraid. I donated it to my Compassionate Friends chapter in the hope it might strike the right chord with someone else.
