Alicia, from the blog “Mom’s Don’t Say That!” (what a great name by the way!) contacted me when I put out a request for reviewers. Her cousin recently lost a baby at 11 weeks, and she recommended Sunshine After the Storm to her.
Alicia is also a trained therapist, and although not working in that field anymore, her friends still often seek out her advice. I thought she was a great person to read and review Sunshine After the Storm.
Her review is beautiful and honest. This is one of my favorite quotes from her review:
What I really enjoyed about the book is that it is written by people who have been there and experienced these losses first hand. It’s not a psychologist or a therapist sitting behind a desk telling us how “most women handle loss” and what the “normal grieving process” looks like. While those things are helpful, more for a therapist than a grieving mother, it’s the stories of those who have survived loss that provide the most help.
