Chasing Death: Losing a Child to Suicide

“I ordered this book from Amazon exactly 5 days after my son’s death and started reading it the day it arrived. I was in such shock and agony and could only read little bits at a time due to brain fog. It was exactly what I needed when my grief was so raw. It helped to know that I was not alone. I was not ready to read about how to grieve, how to recover, how to move on. The book in it’s absolute honesty was ironically the only thing that could sooth my raw emotions.” ~ Amazon Reviewer
