This personal tale about the sudden loss of a 30-something husband and father, Don Alderman, to cancer has helped me to feel better because it reminds me so much of our own situation. Don Alderman had Hodgkin's Lymphoma and died of a resulting massive pulmonary embolism.

"Why did daddy die?" was written by a psychologist named Linda Alderman. I think that Alderman is especially well-equipped to tell her story because she was already trained to deal with emotions and coping for her career.

I personally enjoy this book, the detail within Don's death had caught my attention so much that my eyes were glued to this book. This book went beyond my expectations therefore I rate it a 5/5.
