Holding Avery by Heidi Chandler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I’m not typically a fan of memoirs as they tend to come across either preachy or like the writer needs to get a grip and grow up. This is far from how Chandler presents her story. The writing is honest, truthful and touching. How anyone can move past such a loss is something I hope to never understand but this is as close as it gets. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has lost a child. Reading the emotion and understanding that you are not alone in this situation is therapeutic and helpful in ways I can’t begin to provide words for. Bring tissues. I received an ARC through the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion.
