A Grief Like No Other is the book no one wants to ever have to buy; sadly, many people continue to need it. From 9/11 to Cindy Sheehan's son – from mass tragedies like the recent London bombings to Law and Order type crimes that make the news only to be replaced by another name. As such, more people are left with the aftermath of dealing with the violent death of a loved one. It brings its own special brand of grieving since victim's families can spend years dealing with legal ramifications, guilt, and a myriad of other circumstances that don't accompany "normal" deaths. Kathleen O'Hara knows both sides of this coin. As a therapist, she has counseled hundreds of people dealing with grief. As a mother, she saw her worst fears realized when her college-aged son was brutally murdered in 1999. In the aftermath of Aaron's murder, O'Hara developed the seven stage journey that is at the heart of A Grief Like No Other. Although this is a book for those left behind in the aftermath of violence, it offers concrete and practical steps and stages, allowing family and friends safe passage through this incredibly harrowing journey.

“We have a homicide. We’ve fingerprinted the victim and identified her as your daughter, Angela Noe.” These are the words that changed a mother’s life forever. “How can you be sure it’s her?” “She has a tattoo on her left shoulder that says, ‘Free Bird.’” Carol Noe’s safe denial was smashed to pieces. Carol remembered how excited Angela was the day she got the Free Bird tattoo that represented her continual search for freedom. But Angela’s desire to be free had a dark side. At about age 14, she began to resist authority; she stayed out late or didn’t come home at all; and, soon, she was spiraling down a path of addiction. Despite family, friends, clergy, and therapists reaching out to help Angela, she continued her desperate slide into alcohol, drugs, and eventually a life of prostitution that ended with her tragic murder at the age of nineteen. Farewell, My Free Bird is a mother’s story of her daughter, Angela, and her life that was filled with turmoil before she was brutally murdered. However, it is not only a story of tragedy and loss. More importantly, it is a story of forgiveness: forgiveness made possible only by God’s faithfulness to Angela and her family. It is a testimony of how God can bring freedom for the captives; how He can heal the broken-hearted; and how He brings new life out of death. It is natural to wonder, Is God real? Does He answer prayer? Can He be trusted? Does He care about each of us and what we’re going through? All these questions are answered with a resounding “Yes!” in the pages of Farewell, My Free Bird.

Insanity or Murder: A Mother's Story of Love, Loss, and Betrayal is a memoir and the true crime account of Sandra's life navigating her way through the death of her eight-year-old daughter by her same-sex partner of 15 years. From early childhood, Sandra learned that secrets are to be kept, and feelings are to be submerged. She tells of her years in the Navy and of hiding her sexual orientation, and of her ultimately finding a partner to build a life with. When Sandra has her beautiful baby girl, Lindsay, it's a dream come true. But that dream turns into a nightmare when she comes home one day to discover her daughter dead, killed by the person she trusted most. No mother should ever have to see with her own two eyes, let alone actually be expected to comprehend, what Sandra saw behind a closed door. This book is the story of her daughter's murder, but it is also the story of years of self-destruction, self-hatred, betrayal and ultimate redemption. Offering readers the tools they need to survive tragedy and emerge on the other side, Insanity or Murder is a story that needs to be told, and one that needs to be read.

Regretting Motherhood

Women who opt not to be mothers are frequently warned that they will regret their decision later in life, yet we rarely talk about the possibility that the opposite might also be true-that a woman who becomes a mother might regret it. Sociologist Orna Donath dispels the silence around this profoundly taboo subject in a powerful work that draws from her years of research interviewing women who wish they had never become mothers.Donath treats regret as a feminist issue- as regret marks the road not taken, we need to consider whether alternative paths for women may currently be blocked off. Donath asks that we pay attention to what is forbidden by our contemporary rules governing motherhood, time, and emotion, including the cultural assumption that motherhood is a "natural" role for women-for the sake of all women, not just those who regret becoming mothers. Donath finds that the women in her study became mothers for a wide variety of reasons- some did so to avoid divorce, exclusion from their family, or alienation from their friends; others did not think about it at all, but accepted it as the "next step" of what society considers to be a normal and natural life course. Others experinced regret despite initially having an strong desire to become mothers. Though they may love their children, these women each describe the agonizing guilt and suffering they have experienced as a result of becoming mothers, and consider the different ways they have each come to recognize and deal with these conflicts.If we are disturbed by the idea that a woman might regret becoming a mother, Donath says, our response should not be to silence and shame these women; rather, we need to ask honest and difficult questions about how society pushes women into motherhood and why those who reconsider it are still seen as a danger to the status quo. Groundbreaking, thoughtful, and provocative, this is an especially needed book in our current political climate, as women's reproductive rights continue to be at the forefront of nationwide debates.
