In studying the life of Elizabeth Prentiss this book is a must but a hard read. Elizabeth graphically describes the events and details of the passing of two of her children and how she went on in life to bless others who walked the same grief stricken path. The book was collated after Elizabeth's death and is mostly made up of her journal entries and letters to friends.
