On April 6, 2001, Barry Kluger began his day with a round of golf. While on the eleventh hole, he called home to check messages and received the news every parent dreads-his eighteen-year-old daughter, Erica, had been in a car accident. Frantically, he called the hospital, not realizing that his only child had already been dead for seventeen minutes.

In his compelling memoir of a father's journey through the depths of grief after he loses his funny, enthusiastic, caring, and friendly daughter to a tragic accident, Kluger chronicles the early days of Erica's life and the hours, days, weeks, months, and years after her passing. While sharing emails, letters, and diary entries, Kluger helps others understand why men grieve differently-sometimes outwardly and sometimes privately-and reflects on such poignant moments as when he walked into Erica's bedroom for the first time after the accident and realized she was never coming back to her room ... ever.

From the religious rituals to the mistakes, regrets, and the joyous moments that eventually came, this compelling story will help others understand how a journey through grief can help us to see what we were, what we are, and what we can become.
