The Blue Balloon

The Blue Balloon by Sally MathewsEvery parent lives with the unspeakable fear of the loss of a child. Life holds no greater indignity than that of a parent who outlives their child. When the unspeakable happens, the rising tide and waves of grief seem unsurvivable. This book is a firsthand account of a mother whose son was tragically killed in an accident and her journey through that unbearable grief.

This unflinching look at how a parent’s reality is forever changed after the death of a child is both heartbreaking and hopeful. The grieving will recognize themselves in many places and feel less alone in their loss.

Everyone’s grief is unique and so will their journey be through that grief. This example of one mother’s path will bring hope to the grieving that they can find theirs.
