    1. Great story!Thoughts and quotes from the book:Make a promise with your family, "we will never forget that we don't need to be rich or important or revered, but we do need to be together"If family doesn't come first, we'll lose it.One day it all ends in clothes and shoes deserted in a closet. One day everyone's clothes will hang alone in their closet.If we fuss about our lies, if we make clothes and houses and work and events of great importance, then in the end we'll be fooled. In the end they a [...]

    2. Received Song for Sarah as a graduation gift and read it in one day. How one can continue to thrive in the face of tragedy is illuminated by d'Arcy one can survive this kind of tragedy is an amazing testimony to the strength of the human spirit.

    3. I've never experienced the kind of loss that this author went through, so I could never pretend to relate, but I was certainly touched by the emotions that were brought out by the simple journal entries. The words are pieces of that time as much as the memories themselves. I'm glad I ran across this book and would suggest it for anyone who has suffered the loss of a small child. While it can't take away any of the pain, it might be able to give hope that the feeling of utter helplessness and des [...]

    4. An amazing book of letters to daughter from mother before and after birth and later death. An unmasked range of emotions that she has gone thru from deep love and happiness to deepest grief known to a mother to loose both daughter and husband. I have not understood some of emotions and feelings that ran thru me during my loss but now I know that they were all normal and part of grieving process. Great read to all grieving mothers.

    5. Entries from Paula D'Arcy's journal, starting with her learning she was pregnant and continuing through the horrendous period of grief she suffered following the deaths of that child and her husband 3 years later. Heartwrenching.

    6. Although the grief is different than mine I found this a really good source for dealing with my life, as it is now!

    7. This mother loved her daughter so much, reading this book i felt a little jealousy to be honest. haha it silly i know

    8. It was kind of melancholy and wonderful all at the same time. It was really cute and sometimes the farthest from being sweet. I loved it. :)
