    loved this book

    This was an absolutely beautiful book. It's quietly emotional and dramatic, but and tone is incredibly enveloping.

    more from this reviewer

    My expectations were not met..

    I had expected this book to be exciting and chalked full of insight, but to my disapointment in was not. The only two reasons why I actually finished the book was, one, because it was a gift from a friend, and, two, I kept up hope for a dramatic ending, that never came.
    I felt the story was all over the place and too much about the little, insignificant details. This book did not hold my attention. I would offten find myself falling asleep.
    Dont get me wrong, I know writing a novle, even publishing a novle is HARD work...but I felt it could have been done much better.

    Quietly beautiful story of the legacy of grief

    This story doesn't necessarily have a "dramatic ending" - because how many of our stories really do? "The Cure for Grief" is a story about a girl named Ruby, and how she watches her family splinter apart from illness, death and grief, and then come back together the best way they know how. It is a story about a girl living through events she thought she'd never have to experience, and how it affects her. Devastatingly accurate in the description of emotions. Beautiful book.

    Long time to get there.

    Interesting account of Ruby and her family, and one could certainly feel the emotion of the happenings in the family, but it just took a long time to get to the point.
