In Partnership with the Marin Chapter of The Compassionate Friends

In The Unspeakable Loss, Nisha -- a Book Passage Path to Publishing member -- offers support, guidance and wisdom from others who have experienced the death of a child, as well as her personal story after the death of her beloved 17-year-old son, Victor, and her insight as a grief counselor and psychotherapist. Charting the long path from the worst possible nightmare, shock, trauma, and overwhelming pain, to a life that once again miraculously contains joy, love, and laughter, she addresses the importance of self-compassion and self-care.

Written in a Q & A format, it goes to the heart of grief, answering the urgent questions that accompany loss. "Will my tears ever stop?" "Who am I now without my child?" "How can I help my other children cope?" "I lost my only child, how do I live?" "Will my marriage survive?" "Will life ever feel worth living again?" The book addresses bereaved family members no matter where they are in their grief process, whether newly bereaved or dealing with a death that occurred many years earlier. It provides an in-depth perspective on how the death of a child affects siblings, other family members and friends, and offers a unique long-term perspective on grief.

While books on grief have sadness at their core, this one contains invaluable hope about surviving and living a purposeful and meaningful life in the aftermath of such heartbreak. The Unspeakable Loss emphasizes love, truth and the often unspoken "signs and signals" from loved ones. It doesn't flinch from the reality or pain caused by the death of a child, yet ultimately it is a book about the choice to embrace life again.
