Publishers Description

Honest, gentle advice for those who have survived an unspeakable loss--the suicide of a loved one.

Transforming suffering into strength, misconceptions into understanding, and shame into dignity, Beverly Cobain and Jean Larch break through the dangerous silence and stigma surrounding suicide to bring readers this much-needed book. Cobain's achingly honest account of dealing with the suicide of a loved one, along with personal stories from others who experienced this profound loss, provide powerful insight into the confusion, fear, and guilt family members experience. A chapter about "the suicidal mind" helps families not only comprehend the depth of their loved one's pain prior to suicide, but also understand why such desperation is so difficult to recognize--even in the closest relationships. By sharing survivor stories as well as the latest thinking and statistics about suicide, Cobain and Larch break through myths, misinformation, and misunderstandings. The result is a book of extraordinary compassion and steadfast guidance for anyone awash in the aftermath of unfathomable loss.

"This frank book about suicide is a giant step toward bringing another form of mental illness out of the closet."
-- Mindy Greiling, Minnesota State Representative and National Alliance for the Mentally Ill (NAMI) National Board of Directors

"This book is a masterpiece for the survivors of suicide and those who care about them."
-- David Satcher, M.D., Ph.D., 16th U.S. Surgeon General and Interim President of Morehouse School of Medicine

Reviews - What do our customers think?
insightful, direct, powerful information  May 27, 2008
this book helped my family understand what goes on in the mind of the person committing the 'act'. this book was very direct, straightforward and powerful. i bought a couple other books, but this one seemed to hit home the most.
Much needed.  Jan 11, 2008
I received this book and read it in two hours. It has definitely helped with the "why" and all the other questions that keep circling in my head. Unfortunately, one doesn't become educated about suicide until necessary, but what I learned from this book is essential to begin healing. I highly recommend that people searching for answers should seek them from sources like this book.
Much Appreciated  Dec 28, 2007
At a difficult time in our family's lives, it was comforting to read this book to maybe understand in some way what happened or what drives a person to this point. Especially when there wasn't even a hint as to why.
Sensitive and Informative  Oct 20, 2007
This is an extremely well researched book what first sensitively describes the tunnel of despair that loved ones passed through before dying by suicide, and then focuses on helpful strategies for recovering from such a shattering loss.
Dying to Be Free  Sep 25, 2007
I found this highly readable book not only informative but feel it helped save my own gave me hope at a time that made no sense at all, the suicide of my son. I read it in one sitting...and will re read it again. My mom loved it too. I will highly recoomend this to anyone who I know is touched by this type of tragedy.
