It was if I were looking into another human soul at it's most vulnerable moments. What a treasure chest of love. Jenni must be so proud.
To be able to write straight from the heart. And to be able to use that gift to help others. I was given this book by a coworker after the loss of my grandson. It stated so clearly the emotions that our family was experiencing. My heart-felt appreciation to the author, Christine.
What a beautiful tribute from a mother to her daughter. This is a book that I feel will profoundly move anyone who has directly or indirectly suffered a similar loss. It is full of emotion and compassion. Every word clearly spoken straight from the heart. I've never felt as though my emotions could be so completely understood or so eloquently expressed. This is a book that I will read and reread. It's better than any other book I have read so far. I was able to cry and smile and cry some more. It was like sitting with a friend, a friend who had already traveled down that road and who was clearing the way for you and willing to walk the entire length with you. Just Beautiful.
