Life-changing

Jackie's story inspires forgiveness, positivity, and love. It emphasizes the power of the human spirit and the love of family. I will never look at life the same way again after reading this beautiful and, yes, brutal book.

I just finished this book today after starting this weekend, and I'm not sure what to think.
I do think Jackie Hance gave a gripping and heart-wrenching description of what can only be described as a parent's worst nightmare realized. However, like another reviewer, I found the book to lack some structure and although my heart broke for Jackie as a mother, I sometimes found myself having difficulty empathizing with her. Although she give him credit in the Epilogue (and occasionally through the book) her husband Warren has borne more than one man should be expected to--I felt so bad for him when reading some of the accounts, thinking how he did not have the opportunity to grieve their daughters for so long because he was trying to hold Jackie together. 
I understand people deal with their family and their grief in their own way, but her misdirected anger toward him was a little much to read chapter after chapter. 
That being said, I do believe that it gives parents the uncomfortable opportunity to ask "what if?" It certainly made me pause and think about all the little things my kids do that might aggravate me--and then I remind myself I still have my children.
Overall, I think a three-star rating is adequate for the book.

    This book is just eh.

    I'm also a grieving mother, only two years into my son being killed in a car accident. However I found Jackie to be full of herself, self absorbed, and very whiny.

    While I sympathize with the author, the story reads as a the ranting of a mad person alternatively threatening
    suicide on the one hand and  raving at any attempt by her husband to go on living. I was disappointed by the lack of
    structure to the story.
