A mother learns how to cope with the death of her son while going through the challenges of helping her family and herself. The journey has its ups and downs as Carol documents the multitude of feelings that she experiences in the journals she wrote after her son committed suicide at the age of eighteen. The journals will help you realize that complete thoughts are not always possible for those dealing with such grief. Your mind wanders, and you will never be the person you were before.
Whether you have gone through an unfortunate event in your life or you're struggling to help a loved one in a similar situation, Carol will let you into the feelings of a mother's pain so that you yourself can understand and/or help those around you. While the story is a horrible tragedy, suicide happens, and the loved ones left behind need to band together to cope.
