The Death of a ChildMary Bartholomew, via The Good Book Stall
Twelve Mothers or Fathers have each told of the death of their child or sibling, and how that has impacted on their lives. I found comfort in reading the afterword by Dorothy Rowe a clinical psychologist and writer, before I read the sometimes heart rending stories of the bereft parents. So many different circumstances, many different ages and causes, but all tragedies in their own right.
No parent expects to be pre-deceased by their child. Most of the contributors are writers by profession, not all. I am loathe to pick one story out from among the others for fear of seeming to denigrate others. All are written with deep love and recognition that life will never be the same again. The impact on parents and siblings is for ever. Recognising the depth and longevity of grief by others can be supportive, and at the end of the book is a glossary of useful organisations. A proportion of the royalties raised by this book will go to the Child Bereavement Charity.
