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.
