About this product
- DescriptionIn 2002, Ann Hood's five-year-old daughter Grace died suddenly from a virulent form of strep throat. Stunned and devastated, the family searched for comfort in a time when ne seemed possible. Hood-an accomplished velist-was unable to read or write. She could only reflect on her lost daughter- the way she looked splashing in the bathtub ...the way we sang 'Eight Days a Week.' One day, a friend suggested she learn to knit. Knitting soothed her and gave her something to do. Eventually, she began to read and write again. A semblance of rmalcy returned, but grief, in ever new and different forms, still held the family. What they could t kw was that comfort would come, and in surprising ways. Hood traces her descent into grief and reveals how she found comfort and hope again-a journey to recovery that culminates with a newly adopted daughter.
