Grief makes us uncomfortable. We expect the bereaved to pop a Prozac and move on-dive into volunteer work, organize a 5K, start a foundation-or at least get back to normal. But sometimes Grief has other ideas, keeping mourners locked in its grip for decades and erasing their self-image and sense of purpose.
Say His Name: A Mother's Grief is the true story of a mother's deep, prolonged grief after the accidental death of her sixteen-year-old son Collin. From five grim days in the hospital to heartbreaking firsts and grief tornadoes that strike at will, Susan Glynn Robinson lays open her despair and paralysis and provides an intimate look into how death ravaged her family.
It's not all sad. Collin's indomitable personality interjects light moments amid the pain, and you'll fall in love with the captivating boy who was taken too soon. Plus, the outpouring of support from the family's loved ones and community is inspirational.
Most of all, if you can't step around the grief monster lounging in your living room, Say His Name: A Mother's Grief will reassure you that you are not alone-and you don't need fixing. As you follow Susan's quest to understand why children die and what happens after death, you will examine your own faith and develop your own explanations for life's unanswerable questions.
