To lose one’s whole family in one ill-fated swoop is unfathomable to most people, but to also be one of the sole-survivors makes it even less comprehensible.

This may be a book that people will shy away from because the story is so incredibly heart-breaking, but I really encourage people to read it. I was overwhelmed by Jill's honesty--I'm not quite sure how to put it into words really. I know I will never forget this book.
