From the Inside Flap:

Many people who endure the emotional suffering of infertility, pregnancy loss, or stillbirth bear this sorrow alone. Pregnancies that end too early are hidden; failed attempts at conception are barely mentioned. Many women and men long to find solace in religious ritual and tradition to ease the emptiness felt from a loss that is without a face, a name, or a grave.

At last, there is a source that acknowledges and encourages expressions of their grief, and offers comfort in the moments of their pain.

Providing companionship and strength for healing from others who also have grieved, this spiritual companion enables you to mourn within the words and ways of Judaism. Drawing deeply on the wellspring of comfort found in traditional Jewish texts and prayer, it offers readings and rituals created especially for parents struggling with the uncertainty and sorrow of pregnancy loss and infertility--providing a source of compassion, healing, and hope.

This new edition invites you to add your stories, memories, and insights to a growing body of ritual and tradition, with guided questions and blank pages on which to tend to your grief through writing and reflecting, leading to the first light of healing.
