For All Those Who Have Lost a Child

I learned of this book by chance and feel very fortunate. While Genesse lost her daughter through an accident, I lost mine through suicide. Yet the emotions are just the same. The loss of a child is devastating. Genesse is a natural poet and her poetry carries through from the news her daughter has died to the final acceptance of this fact in her life. It spoke to my heart, not only with her words, but sometimes how the poems were arrayed on the page. It is a book I will give others who have lost a child in the future.

A Mother's Loss and Recovery

A very dear friend of mine purchased this book for me after the car accident that took the life of my 19 year old daughter, Amy. The poems in this book were exactely the feelings that I was experiencing. This mother put into words for me what I could not. I read the poems in this book everyday and they give me courage to know that even in the darkest hour there is hope. I would recommend this book to anyone who has suffered the sudden, tragic loss of a loved one.

Loss and Transcendence

When the author lost a daughter to death, she found herself, as most grievers do, on the edge of fatal despair.To cite Torquato Tasso, poet of ancient Rome, "and where human beings fall silent in pain, a god gave me the gift to speak my suffering." Gentry's pages are alive with the full range of human emotions - grief beyond endurance, bittersweet memories, and a slow move toward the light of positive survival. This book needs reading more than once -- it is a basic recognition of humanity in desperate times.

book of poetry about loss, recovery and remembrance

this is a book of poetry written by a mother who lost a teenage child in a tragic accident. the book is about loss, remembrance, sharing, support, understanding, compassion and recovery.......most of all the book is about love --- a mother's love for her child now gone, her love for her spouse and the child still here, and the love of her friends - both silent and vocal, physically present and distant. touching, tearful, vibrant and thought provoking
