Fine in softcover. 336 pages. Gift quality book. New book. 'Grieving for your child is an appalling prospect, truly a parentís worst nightmare. Through a mist of pain and sorrow, Alison Montgomery struggled to find some measure of peace and, in doing so, rediscover herself after the accidental death of her 24-year-old son, Chris. Shattered by the loss, she is not the person she was - her life forever divided into 'before' and 'after', defined by membership in a fraternity of grieving parents who function every day in a disbelieving fog. You never get over it; you just get through it - one day at a time.' Some say that death ends a life . . . not a relationship. A valuable resource for family, friends and professionals supporting those who are grieving, Finding Christopher is a visceral step into the journey of child loss - and it is as terrible as one who has not experienced it can imagine it to be. Alison Montgomery is a wonderful writer and this book is a real gift. Pictorial cover. Bright, clean.
