Elizabeth McCracken writes, "This is the happiest story in the world with the saddest ending," and proceeds to tell a powerful story of life-changing loss, slow and painful healing and eventually, hope. She offers a new vocabulary for loss and thought-provoking ideas on how we deal with a stillborn baby in a world where a healthy birth is taken for granted. This is the perfect book for someone suffering a similar loss. McCracken's search for consolation offers others what she sought: the confirmation that we are not alone in our grief and our fears of moving on. Beautiful.
