I am still thinking about this book, but I am not sure why. A terrible tragedy strikes Roger Rosenblatt's family. His daughter, Amy dies unexpectedly at age 38. Rosenblatt has always been a writer and it appearss that he copes with change by writing about it.

I had never read anything by Rosenblatt, so I started the book thinking that it would be tugging at my heartstrings. That is not this author's way. What he does instead is bring the reader into the day to day coping with death.

This is a very quiet, unassuming book. I am glad that I have read it. I just don't know what I will be thinking about it in 6 months. Will I remember it?
