A Letter to Brody

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
This is a letter, written in lieu of a eulogy by a grieving father to his son, who died at two months of age from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

It is a heartfelt tribute, meant to resonate with any parent who has lost a child; a beacon, perhaps---a suggestion of light and hope within the maelstrom of unimaginable, devastating loss.

About R.S. Guthrie

R.S. Guthrie grew up in Iowa and Wyoming. He has been writing fiction, essays, short stories, and lyrics since college.

"Black Beast: A Clan of MacAulay Novel" marked Guthrie's first major release and it heralded the first in a series of Detective Bobby Macaulay (Bobby Mac) books. The second in the series (Lost) hit the Kindle shelves December of 2011.

Guthrie's "Blood Land" is the first in the Sheriff James Pruett Mystery/Thriller series and represents a project that is close to his heart: it is set in a fictional town in the same county where he spent much of his childhood and still visits.

Guthrie lives in Colorado with his wife, Amy, three young Australian Shepherds, and a Chihuahua who thinks she is a 40-pound Aussie!

Review by: Kimberly A Bettes on Oct. 13, 2011 :
As a mother, this has been a fear of mine since the day I discovered I was pregnant. I can't imagine losing my child, though this story gave me a glimpse into the sadness that would become my world if it were ever to happen. Very well-written, this is a heart-touching story.

Review by: Ron Leighton on Sep. 29, 2011 :
R.S. Guthrie’s short A Letter to Brody is a heartbreaking memorial to an infant boy gone too soon. But it is also an insistent and finally victorious assault, gathering momentum as it goes, on the fear that resides like a cancer in the heart of grief.
