5Excellent Book for Bereaved Parents, Mar 7, 2023
Beyond Tears is the poignant, encouraging, eloquent story of how nine mothers coped and are coping with the deaths of their children. The book deals with the various issues faced by bereaved parents and tells how they and their spouses experienced and are still dealing with those issues. This book provides valuable insights for the bereaved at all stages in their grief journeys.

The portraits of the children and the writing of their parents provide a loving and realistic view of the world of bereaved parents.

I've read many books on grief since my daughter Linda died eleven years ago. This is one of the best.

5A must read!, Mar 3, 2023
This book is a must have for any parent who has lost a child, anyone who knows someone who has lost a child and anyone in the mental health field who may come in contact with bereaved parents. Each of the nine authors gives an open and painfully honest account of her loss and journey through the grieving process. There are also sections in each chapter that explain what a bereaved parent may experience as well as what supports these authors found helpful and therapeutic. I especially liked the parts in each chapter where the women are sharing their feelings with one another because it helps to illustrate the importance of critical supports and how these women helped each other to get through the most painful loss any mother could experience. The poems these mothers wrote for their lost children moved me to tears. There is also a chapter in the book where the fathers openly share their feelings and grief with each other as well. I found this book to be extremely well written and, in spite of the difficult subject matter, I had a hard time putting it down.

5From the Hearts, Feb 18, 2023
Unlike clinical discussions of grieving this book is from the heart. Nine brave hearts, that risked reliving their own pain to share the experience of their personal,intimate journey of grieving for the loss of their children.This book helps everyone understand grief has no timelines,no rules,and no boundries. It is as individual as each personal experience.This book is a lasting,final sacrifice and tribute to their children.

5Beyond Tears, Feb 8, 2023
The book's searing emotional intensity, almost too painful to read, is effectively contained by the careful, rhythmic pacing--statements by nine women who have endured the most grievous of losses alternating with moving evocations of the children they mourn. Anyone who has lost a child-- or who knows someone who has-- should read it.

5Beyond Fabulous, Feb 8, 2023
Beyond Tears by Ellen Mitchell and the 9 bereaved parents was "beyond fabulous." I am a bereaved parent and it was the first book I've read on the topic that really helped, guided and provided hope in an honest way for those in the same situation. The brief stories of their children which were interspersed throughout the book added tremendously to the impact of the book.
