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? Can we survive? And, Can we ever be happy again? They each fall into the abyss of grief in different ways and they each eventually find their own faltering way to keep on living.
In Rare Bird, Anna Whiston-Donaldson tells a mother’s story of loss and survival. Anna’s storytelling is raw, honest and real. This is a book about facing impossible circumstances and wanting to turn back the clock. It is also about finding a flicker of hope, which in Anna’s case comes from hanging on to her faith, but not without great difficulty.
