Rare Bird

No mother is ever prepared to lose her child. Especially in a freak accident, and certainly not when they are barely 12 years of age. Anna Whiston-Donaldson is no exception. When a rare and violent storm takes the life of Anna's only son, she is left befreft and bewildered. How did this happen to my child? Could I have done more and saved him? Were all the signs leading up to this supposed to prevent this from happening? Grief stricken Anna has a hard time doing anything that would be deemed as normal. And her relationships take a strain and she fights to keep her head above water so her daughter at least can have the mom she needs. During the following months and years Anna journeys down a path no mom should ever have to walk. Will she ever be able to find happiness again? Will her family stand the test of time? And where is God in all of this? This was a heart wrenching story! As a mom it was impossible not to be moved to tears as I poured over the pages in this book. The author is a great writer in my opinion. I zipped right through this book with the ease of her writing style. But even more as i journeyed with her on her tough journey and how she responded to grief t its worst. I would recommend this book to anyone dealing with loss or grief. Or to the person who wants to be more sympathetic towards those around them dealing with the pain of losing someone. i received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
