It began as an ordinary, uneventful day in December 1994--without any warnings, whispered messages in her ear, or premonitions that this would be the last normal day Karen Frenette would ever experience. It was the day her nineteen-year-old son, Corey, would take his last breath.
In her memoir, Lost in Grief: A Mom's Story, Frenette narrates the poignant story of her long and difficult journey through the emotional dark wood of grief after her son was tragically killed in a car crash. With raw honesty, Frenette details the sixteen-year-long process of how she found her way back to discovering the goodness in life, even after expriencing the worst it had to deliver. As she offers inspiration for other parents grieving their own losses, she recalls how she struggled with her own fears, doubts, and pain, wondering if the all-consuming deep ache of yearning would ever cease.
Lost in Grief: A Mom's Story offers help and guidance any parent who has endured the death of a child and needs to know that through all the darkness there is someone in the world who truly understands.
