Overview
A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER, NOW IN PAPERBACK

"I wish I had nothing to say on the matter of loss, but I do. Because one day I encouraged my two kids to go out and play in the rain, and only one came home ."

On an ordinary September day, twelve-year-old Jack is swept away in a freak neighborhood flood. His parents and younger sister are left to wrestle with the awful questions: How could God let this happen? And, Can we ever be happy again? They each fall into the abyss of grief in different ways. And in the days and months to come, they each find their faltering way toward peace.
In Rare Bird, Anna Whiston-Donaldson unfolds a mother s story of loss that leads, in time, to enduring hope. Anna s storytelling, says Glennon Doyle Melton, is raw and real and intense and funny.
With this unforgettable account of a family s love and longing, Anna will draw you deeper into a divine goodness that keeps us beyond all earthly circumstances safe.
This is a book about facing impossible circumstances and wanting to turn back the clock. It is about the flicker of hope in realizing that in times of heartbreak, God is closer than your own skin. It is about discovering that you re braver than you think."
