This is a difficult subject and Connie Saindon covers it carefully, with directness and compassion and a wealth of resources. Any family who is surviving the murder of a loved one will benefit from owning a copy of this book. It may need to be read in small doses, but comfort will be found in the shared experiences. Lots of stories from survivors–they are all different yet there is so much that is a common experience. I not only recommend this for counselors and families of survivors, but also for friends of those families. It provides so much insight and really provides some tools to help friends through the horror of murder. Very well done. I recommend it without reservation.
