A searing, open-hearted account that is courageous in its complexity and honesty. A seemingly impossible journey of grief, acceptance, and forgiveness recorded in this work is one shared, to a some extent, by every one of us. This book takes the often abstract concepts of grace and compassion and makes them exquisitely–often painfully–real.
