Letters To My Son (ePub) | Autobiography
The death of any child is overwhelming. Parental grief is intense, long-lasting and complex. In Letters to My Son, Mignonne Breier explores her own relationship with this grief. After the sudden death of her eldest son, Matthew – from leukaemia (aged 25) – her view of her own world, and her place in it, is profoundly changed. But in coming to terms with her loss she develops a deeper understanding of herself and this, in turn, leads her to a form of closure that is as delicate and complex as her relationship with the child she has had taken from her.
An intense and beautifully written book that will resonate with readers of all ages and backgrounds. Those who have lost a child and those who have not.
