A Story of Love, Loss, and Life, by Cathy Sosnowsky, a memoir of a mother's bereavement book review
A Story of Love, Loss, and Life, by Cathy Sosnowsky, a memoir of a mother's bereavement.
In this book, the author, Cathy Sosnowsky tells the heart-wrenching story of how she endured the loss of her newborn daughter, Susannah as well as the death of her son Alex who died in a freak accident. As if the loss of a child is not horrific enough, Cathy lost every one of her children. Two to death, one to drugs and another to a life of crime on the streets.
Throughout Cathy's journey she learned some powerful life lessons, including patience, strength that she did not realize she had, and that love is forever no matter where our children may be.
As a mother, I do not even want to imagine how I would handle the grief and the turmoil she went through. Her story is heart-breaking, but instead of letting her experiences engulf her, Cathy chooses to look to the future with her husband, Woldy, and beloved granddaughter, Ainsley, and she looks with hope.
A great read for all mothers. This story will make you hug your children tighter, and to appreciate every moment you have with them.
