Item Description...
Grieving parents will find this forthright documentary written by a loving mother in deep grief to be more than just supportive - it glows with spiritual insights. Corinne Chilstrom has opened her heart, mind, and spirit to all people who are struggling with seemingly unendurable grief. At the same time challenging and comforting, Chilstroms's book speaks to Christians who want to know what to do in the face of sudden tragedy. This is a book for us as we learn to grieve, for all of us as we learn to live.

Publishers Description
In the most simple, straightforward language, this mother tells the heart's story: the love for her son which had to continue without that son; the embrace of speechless grief and of a murmuring, speaking community; the deep, spiritual events that occurred for her and her family when one son took his life. It is the author's intent that reading this will be an experience which enhances life; one which will help make the encounter with grief not only more bearable, but actually growth-producing. Readers will find here therapy, catharsis, understanding, and even fresh grounding for faith, hope, and love--hope, being at such times and momentarily, "the greatest of these."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Rev. Chilsom does her best to reach out to others...  Jun 9, 2001
I found comfort in this book but, being Christian was not offended by the MANY referrals to scriputures and psalms quoted in the book. I don't know if survivors of other faiths would share in this or be uncomfortable about the multiple references to Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.I could also see anyone who is really ANGRY at God right now for the suicide of their loved one being irrate at the references but, may find it helpful later on in their grieving process.I cannot say I would reccomend this book for all.
Clarification  Apr 15, 2000
In response to the last review stating that this is a book with strong religious overtones; more accurately, it's a religious book--published by a church book publisher and authored by a Lutheran Pastor. A religious book is what should be expected.
Strong religious overtones  Jan 7, 2000
In the three years since my 24-year old brother committed suicide, I've bought and read several books about surviving the suicide of a loved one. Unfortunately, this one is not my favorite. I did relate to many parts of the authors' experience and feelings about the loss of their son. But I was turned off by the strong religious overtones of much of their writing. Although I do have a strong belief in God, I didn't personally find their numerous references to God and prayer helpful in dealing with my feelings. I found other books, such as Carla Fine's "No Time To Say Goodbye" more helpful in accepting and dealing with the feelings of guilt, shame and anger I've felt since my brother's death.
Must-Read for a parents of a child who's died by suicide  Dec 26, 1999
The Chilstrom's son, Andy died by suicide in 1984 at 18. This book blows away some myths about suicide and tells a very personal and revealing story of the author's family learning (by experience) more about suicide and grief.

Her experience and writing can help many who must deal with similar facts--or friends of such a family--especially people of faith. Not only for suicide survivors, though, consider reading this book if you have adopted children.

For me it was a good read--I knew Andy Chilstrom as an aquaintence when we were both teenagers--because I now better understand his struggles. You will, after reading, seek out your own children for a long tender hug and kiss.

The author's husband was the presiding bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America from '87 until a few years ago. He was a bishop of a Minnesota Lutheran synod during the book's events--so in many ways, they were public people and had to deal with the baggage that accompanies that fact.
