NOT BY ACCIDENT: RECONSTRUCTING A CARELESS LIFE is a very well written, indeed it's a beautifully written, book. The language used just keeps you flowing along through the story, which is absorbing in its own right. The book presents a tale of facing death, of tearing apart assumptions, and of deep insights revealed which profoundly change a life. We see guilt, sorrow, growth, hard work, heroism, in fact, almost every emotion runs through this book especially the one needed most: appreciation. Samantha Dunn is to be commended for the way in which she presents the events unfolding around her life, and the sterling use of our language, crafting the structure of words and sentences into something profound. You will not be disappointed if you read this work. I predict a literary prize in its future.
