Renowned singer/songwriter Judy Collins's deeply moving memoir chronicles her journey from pain to survival following the suicide of her son, and offers comfort to those who struggle in suicide's aftermath. In Sanity and Grace, Collins reveals with unflinching honesty the events leading up to and following the death of her only child, culminating when she picks up the pieces of her shattered heart and gathers the strength to move forward. An elegantly written testimony of a survivor, Collins strives at first just to exist, and then to find solace in the face of grief and untimely loss. With this book, she breaks down the barriers of helplessness and secrecy to openly discuss the aftereffects of suicide, and explains how she found a path to hope and clarity. Sanity and Gracespeaks to all who have endured the sorrow of losing a loved one before their time. In the depths of her suffering Collins found relief by reaching out to others for help and support. Now, she extends her hand to comfort other survivors whose lives have been affected by similar tragedy. This inspirational book will serve as a balm to help soothe and heal those wounded by suicide.
