This is the story of Elizabeth McCracken and how she survived the stillbirth of her son. It is her story alone. Yet it is the story of every woman who has experienced this tragedy. Ms. McCracken has given a voice on a subject that has long been much too silent. I wish I had written this book. But I am better for having read it. I related to her attitude on grief and death, which is you don't want to wallow in it, but you don't want to shut it up in a closet either. It's just there. Sometimes people don't understand the loss of a child who never breathed on their own. This book will explain it. She writes, "He was a person. I missed him like a person."
