Description



About the Book



A renowned psychotherapist offers parents who have suffered the death of a child a new context for understanding and coping with their loss. Miller draws on years of research to present a wide-ranging look at the rituals parents practice around the world to understand both why their child has died and to find a comforting explanation for what happens to children after death.



Book Synopsis



The death of a child is an overwhelming loss. "Why did my child die?" and "Is my child suffering now?" are questions that all people, of all cultures and backgrounds, ask. But characteristic of Western culture is a limited language for expressing grief, and a consuming guilt that undermines the recovery process. Dr. Sukie Miller, author of the landmark work After Death, turns to the beliefs and healing stories of other cultures to present a unique perspective that is both surprising and comforting. Sharing her research with a compassionate and grounded voice, she offers hope to those seeking meaning in what seems senseless, and heartening possibilities for returning to wholeness, even if we feel life cannot ever be the same.
