This is the story of the birth, so-short life, and death of Rebecca, the baby daughter of Robert and Margaret Jonas. After months of anticipation, she flashed through their lives like a comet and was gone. As Henri Nouwen says in his foreword, "It is a book about grief, but also about gratitude; about anger, but also about hope; about fear, but also about love; about loss but also about gain; about powerlessness, but also about power; about time, but also about eternity. It is a book about hospital rooms, but also about the universe. It is a book about being human, but also about being divine".
