Looking for books about losing a child...

Hi, Readers!

I'm looking for book club type novels about losing a baby or a child and how that loss affects the parents/a marriage. Books about grief after losing a child.

Any ideas are appreciated!

Thank you!
Leah

“Remember to value who you are no matter what. Believe you are worth being loved and don’t ever settle.”
Leah DeCesare, Forks, Knives, and Spoons

“There’s so much in life that is fragile, she thought, but it only means you should love it more, hold it closer, instead of keeping it at a distance worried that it will break your heart.”
Leah DeCesare, Forks, Knives, and Spoons

“You bought me some forks. And knives. And spoons. Because you love me!”
Sarah Dessen, This Lullaby

“Books may well be the only true magic.”
Alice Hoffman

“Don’t believe everything you think,” said Gamache, before releasing the hand and opening the door. “Pema Chödrön. A Buddhist nun.”
Louise Penny, A Great Reckoning

“Rumors are hard to prove, but they’re even harder to disprove. We both know that character assassination is easy. All it takes is a suggestion. A well-placed word in someone’s ear.”
Louise Penny, A Great Reckoning

“Never be so focused on what you're looking for that you overlook the thing you actually find.”
Ann Patchett, State of Wonder
