Once, by chance, they read the same book at the same time—and an informal book club of two was born. Through their wide-ranging reading, Will and Mary Anne—and we, their fellow readers—are reminded how books can be comforting, astonishing, and illuminating, changing the way that we feel about and interact with the world around us.
What we as her audience take away from this remarkable drama is a keener sense that, while death is real and unavoidable, our lives are ours to cherish or throw away—a lesson that can be both uplifting and redemptive. Then: a classmate swerved in front of his car. The collision resulted in her death.
With piercing insight and stark prose, Darin Strauss leads us on a deeply personal, immediate, and emotional journey—graduating high school, going away to college, starting his writing career, falling in love with his future wife, becoming a father. Along the way, he takes a hard look at loss and guilt, maturity and accountability, hope and, at last, acceptance. The result is a staggering, uplifting tour de force. What grief books would you recommend? Read it and discover, not something new to believe in, but something as old as time that you can know and recognize as truth: Death is not the end.

Saved my sanity after we lost our daughter Lora Beth in a car wreck. Great list! I escaped into my journal five years ago after losing my daughter. I wrote voraciously to work out the contents of my heart and to find a way to emerge from the deep darkness.
I wrote for myself in an uncensored manner. I died my own death. I cried, I yelled, I collapsed and I was miraculously surrounded with the most incredible light. The most moving part of publishing this book is the honest conversations that are surrounding it. The vulnerability and authenticity as people begin to share their own stories.

Deceased organ donation for transplantation: Challenges and opportunities
Four beautiful books in my collection I can totally recommend — Inthe Springtime of the Year by Susan Hill, a remarkable novel about sudden loss Swimmer in the Secret Sea by William Kotzwinkle and An Exact Replica of a Figment of my Imagination by Elizabeth McCracken these are both about stllbirth, the former an exquisite novella, the latter a stunning memoir and If You Sit Very Still, which is a luminous memoir of loss, violent death and forgiveness by Marian Partington. Oh and a fifth!
They have each made a profound impact on me. The grief story that begins when you know that your child, whom you love more than life itself, has a life limiting condition and you must prepare both yourself and them for a crushing parting.

When my husband of 53 years unexpectedly dropped dead before my eyes, I was in shock for many days. A neighbor gave me this same book and of all the many books I read over the next year, it was the only one that really helped me. I read Death Be Not Proud many years ago. Tragically sad but beautifully written by war correspondent, John Gunther. There was a TV movie with Robbie Benson as the terminally ill son who towered above his illness until the bitter end.
It will make you cry but worth reading. My Dad told me to read this when I was in high school. At the time it was kind of distressing, but now that I have a little perspective I recognize how beautiful the story is.
