Overview

First You Die: Learn to Live after the Death of Your Child by Marie Levine

After several years of writing a regular column about the despair, anger and confusion she felt after the death of her only child, Marie Levine weaves the story of her own bereavement into a collection of essays, poems and writings that chronicle her own surviving mother's journey. As a nightmarish reality envelops her, Marie describes the ultimate restoration of hope and healing as she learns to live a whole new life she could never have imagined. This book has become a "classic" in the genre of bereavement - particularly regarding the loss of a child.
