I received this book for free via the Goodreads First Reads program.

This book went through the author's struggle with a stillbirth. It was incredibly sad, yet it did have a happy ending (yay for Harrison!). While reading it, I kept hoping and praying that I never have to go through such a thing.

I would especially recommend this book for people who have gone through this themselves.

I was lent this book by a friend after I had give birth to my daughter who was stillborn. While readying Cynthia's story, I came to see that there may be hope withing the future after all.

I wrote this book as a love letter to my daughter who was stillborn almost 16 years ago. My wish is that those mothers who are searching for a way to cope with the loss of their child will find some solace within its pages. Cynthia Baseman, Author

My heart broke for Cynthia and then throughout the book I felt as if it was my heart healing. I was hoping by reading her story it would in some way help me with mine. Thank you Cynthia for sharing your loss and for also giving hope

I read this whole book in 2 hours, a record for me. Her story mirrored mine in many different ways.

The first third of this book is heartbreaking. Then it slows down a bit, and becomes kind of tedious.
