I am pleased that a return to this book after 4 years remained a magical, positive insight into someone else’s journey. With her gentle, flowing, descriptive use of language, she captures your imagination from the first few pages. With the calmness of a story reported with the value of clarity of hindsight she easily points out the symbolism that many will see. The moments that make you question what the significance of that particular moment was.
There is a time, early in the book where Lorraine’s cousin calls. In one sentence she sums up how I feel & felt. “When I left the hospital back then, I thought I had tried to make a baby and failed. Five years later I’d tell you I tried to make a baby and instead I made an angel. It’s not a terrible thing to have your own angel. I know that sounds weird to you now, but you’ll come to know it’s true”.
The book describes the searching, despairing research – that just shows you how much silence surrounds the loss of a baby. She finds historical accounts interesting, and discovers the hidden community of mothers who recognise that special pain and find you to tell you their pain.
I could write a very long review about this book. There are so many points in it that at the time of my loss jumped out of the page at me. Perhaps it started me on my way to finding a deeper spiritual meaning in my loss. I would love to know how Lorraine feels now looking back & what twists and turns her life took After Victoria.
I would highly recommend this for parents that have lost a baby who are ready to look for the stars in the dark, dark night, and those working in the field who would gain a better understanding of how families can explore this.

I have a singned copy of this book and open it once in a while. I gave a copy to a friend who also went through the loss. I also believe that a power of healing of Victoria’s story is universal to the human loss and grief in general. You will never forget this story and it will bring you peace, I promise.
