I had a hard time getting into this book,
Claire Bidwell Smith's memoir does not read chronologically
but instead is laid out through the five stages of grief,
A deep, intense grief stemming from
losing both her parents to cancer at a young age:
It's not an easy read.
It's raw emotions slashing across the page,
creeping around corners
and draping across your shoulders.
Yet, it was interesting.
It made me want to gather up my loved ones and spend more quality time.
And Claire Bidwell Smith writes well. Very descriptive, evoking emotions.
Despite the rock bottom, she manages to come out of this...
and turn her life into something that matters.
It was inspiring, despite my doubts and depression reading it.
