In 2010 Sophie Wyndham's world was shattered when she had a stillborn son. Five months later she had a miscarriage. This is the raw account of her struggle with loss and infertility, and the changed woman she became through it. Sophie openly and honestly recounts the journey of healing (and ultimately the birth of a daughter), and gives voice to the silent grief experienced by millions of women and their partners. This is a memoir that is uncomfortable to read, because the subject is so uncomfortable. But with 1 in 4 women experiencing the loss of a pregnancy, and many struggling to conceive, it's a subject that needs to be understood and treated with compassion. Sophie's story is hers, but it is only one of millions like her, and reading it will leave you with a clearer picture of the grief carried by these mama's, and how to support and love those who are experiencing the same grief.
