Review by: Faye Hicks on Oct. 24, 2012 :
This touching short story provides intimate insights into the devastating grief associated with having a miscarriage (and especially multiple miscarriages). If you have a friend or family member who has, or is, going thought this ordeal, this story will help you to understand and be more effective in your support. If you are going through this yourself, you may find it easier to ask your friends and family to read it, rather than trying to express these difficult emotions directly.

Review by: Sharon Hicks on April 13, 2012 : (no rating)
Another gripping portrayal by the author, of an experience which most women (myself included) are lucky enough never to have to endure. We can scarcely imagine what it must feel like to be robbed of the chance of motherhood, repeatedly, and this story gives us clear insight into the pain of such loss. But on the flip side, it also depicts the optimistic tenacity of the human spirit, to 'try again'.
