Out of Grief, Singing (Paperback)
|Author: Charlene Diehl|
"Out of Grief, Singing" is an achingly beautiful account of how a woman comes to terms with the loss of her newborn. After a bewildering series of rapid diagnoses and emergency interventions, Charleneas daughter Chloe is born. But her too-brief life is spent in the neonatal intensive care unit, and her mother, leveled by an epidural anaesthetic procedure gone wrong, can barely make it to her daughter''s side. In the months following Chloeas death, more medical crises make it nearly impossible to even begin the grieving process, let alone return to any semblance of a normal life. But return she does, along a path that is both arduous and rich. With a poet''s ear for language, Charlene Diehl shares her discovery of joy amidst a devastating loss.
