Jennifer Shriverabout this book: A call that can change your life forever can come at any moment. I experienced that when my sister, who I had not spoken to in a very long time, called to give me the news of my mom’s passing. My mom and I had been estranged for years. We had an off again, on again relationship for a long time before it finally was just over.
“the loss of A MOTHER’s loss” delves into all the things that got my mom and I to the point we were, all the way from her bitter divorce to the last time I saw her. It answers the question that people have asked for so long, what happened?
After attending her funeral and seeing people I have not seen in years and being asked the questions again, I decided it was finally time to get it all out in the open. This is my personal journey from receiving that phone call, to going back home for the first time in a very long time, to seeing people I have not seen in a very long time, to saying goodbye.
Throughout the days I was back home, where I grew up, the book takes “flash backs” describing the events that happened while I was growing up and after I left home to be on my own to explain how my mom and I got to the point we were.
It is a hard truth knowing there is no more time for reconciliation, no more time to have a mother. It is even harder feeling as if people do not believe you should be hurting.
