Book Review: Without Jenny by Mark Gunther

Powerful and Moving

Everything was going perfect for Joy’s family when a mishap occurred. Her life came to stand still along with her daughter’s loss. Family, Judaism, work, athletics–nothing will deliver what she wants the most: Jenny. Joy struggles to live a life of purpose and compassion while grief is tearing it apart. The lifetime loss of the comfort and succor of a living child was impossible to value because the adult capacities of any given child were unpredictable. Each person has their own way of dealing with loss and grief. Being together is very important in these situations.

This book is captivating and heart-wrenching.No words can express the emptiness and pain one goes through. It is a really challenging story to write as a debut author and the readers can experience how hard grief actually is.

I loved the way the author introduces each family member and friends.

Relatable issues in the family, relationship, and society from practical life are dealt with. Trust the people who love you and it takes some years to find the new normal.

This story will leave an imprint on your heart forever.
