This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Matt Logelin writes a courageous and searingly honest memoir about the first year of his life following the birth of his daughter and the death of his wife.
Matt and Liz Logelin were high school sweethearts. After years of long-distance dating, the pair finally settled together in Los Angeles, and they had it all: a perfect marriage, a gorgeous new home, and a baby girl on the way. Liz's pregnancy was rocky, but they welcomed Madeline, beautiful and healthy, into the world. Just twenty-seven hours later, Liz suffered a pulmonary embolism and died instantly, without ever holding the daughter whose arrival she had so eagerly awaited.
Though confronted with devastating grief and the responsibilities of a new and single father, Matt did not surrender to devastation; he chose to keep moving forward-to make a life for Maddy.
In this memoir, Matt shares bittersweet and often humorous anecdotes of his courtship and marriage to Liz; of relying on his newborn daughter for the support that she unknowingly provided; and of the extraordinary online community of strangers who have become his friends. In honoring Liz's legacy, heartache has become solace.
A Must Read. Couldn't Put It Down.
The best book I've read in years. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll be inspired to be a better person. In lighter moments, the book is laugh-out-loud funny, wonderfully sweet and poignant while at other moments you'll find yourself in the midst of the "ugly cry." Buy this book for you. Send this book to the people in your life whom you adore (even those you might not adore, but like a whole lot, nonetheless). An absolutely wonderful, exceptionally-written book. L.O.V.E.D. IT!
