After the Darkest Hour the Sun Will Shine Again: A Parent's Guide to Coping with the Loss of a Child
After Elizabeth Mehren lost her daughter, she set out to write the book she most needed: one that would offer solace, support, and inspiration. Telling her own story and the stories of other bereaved parents - contemporary and historical - she discovered that this worst grief of all never ends but that if you're open to it, it can transform itself. Above all, it is a journey.
After the Darkest Hour is both a guide and a meditation. The author takes us through the process of grieving, from the effects of a child's death on the parents' marriage to what to say when someone asks, "Do you have children?" This book also offers valuable advice for the friends and relatives of bereaved parents.
