Publisher's Summary

On an ordinary September day, 12-year-old Jack is swept away in a freak neighborhood flood. His parents and younger sister are left to wrestle with the awful questions: How could God let this happen? Can we ever be happy again? They each fall into the abyss of grief in different ways. And in the days and months to come, they each find their faltering way toward peace. In Rare Bird, Anna Whiston-Donaldson unfolds a mother's story of loss that leads, in time, to enduring hope. With this unforgettable account of a family's love and longing, Anna will draw you deeper into a divine goodness that keeps us - beyond all earthly circumstances - safe.

Warning! Tears

This is a courageously honest account of a woman's struggles with the grief of her loss and her anger with God at allowing it to happen. Written based on her blogs over the first years of her loss, it is a frank chronicle of the initial wish to give up thru to a new time of thriving. She shared insights in being kind to one's grieving self and what she and her family did to help each other.
