"An Ancient Tear is a compelling story of how a mother's wounds of losing a child through death, miscarriage, abortion, and adoption can be healed through a connection to and with spiritual realms. Carol Schaefer is a brilliant writer and brings her readers right into the experience she shares. This book is filled with love, compassion, and healing words.
In a time where so many women and men are searching for answers that can't be answered through ordinary means, Schaefer lets us know that we can turn to the spiritual realms for comfort, answers and healing."

Author, Soul Retrieval and Medicine for the Earth
An Ancient Tear by Carol Schaefer is pure poetry. A story about the most devastating loss anyone can suffer, the loss of a child, the author reveals her own personal knowledge of loss in an archetypal portrayal of great insight and sensitivity. Her sense of the spiritual aspect of the relationship between mother and child is profound and powerful. This book will bring comfort to anyone who is grieving the loss of a child, and will be appreciated by any mother or daughter.

An Ancient Tear took me on many journeys, each one a new surprise, each one more soul-filling than the last. I've never cried before while reading a book. I definitely want to read it again.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

My mother-who came to know this author through her writing on adoption-brought this book to me soon after the death of my precious, only daughter. The poetic way this author portrays buried grief and gently reveals the power of the greatest force, of the most hallowed relationship- that between a mother and her child- gave me great insight and a feeling of peace. I feel this book catapulted me into a much deeper place in my understanding of this process of grieving. I believe any mother would gain insight from this reading as would any daughter. I especially recommend this reading to any woman who has suffered the most excrutiating loss--that of her child.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
