The autobiographical confession of a counselor who lost her teen daughter to suicide. What she learned about love and forgiveness changed her life forever. It will change your life, too.
“Even though I had been a mental healthcare counselor for years, nothing could have prepared me for the suicide of my 15-year old daughter. Beautiful, smart and loving, she’d also inherited my family’s depressive gene, and had hidden her unhappiness from me. Five days before her death, she stopped taking her medication, and committed suicide in the next room while I slept. Grief combined with guilt left me shattered; devastated, numb, and incapable of functioning. Once the Storm Is Over: From Grieving to Healing After the Suicide of My Daughter is my story about forgiveness, grace, and moving on.”
