Finding a Way : Diane Simmons

Finding a Way : Diane Simmons


This is a beautifully written book about a family negotiating individual paths through their shared grief. Each story is compelling and memorable by itself and they also combine to create an honest, unflinching and deeply touching portrayal of a family guiding themselves and each other through this devastating journey. What struck me most was the way the loss of Becky was shown so poignantly in everyday situations the reader can recognise and imagine, yet without a trace of self-pity. This is a book about how a family grieves, but so much more besides, because it also shows the many different responses of others to a family finding their way through loss and how hard it is to find the right words and actions. Highly recommended.
