Part memoir part handbook for the heartbroken this powerful unsparing account of losing a premature baby will speak to all who have been bereaved and are grieving and offers inspiration on moving forward gently integrating the loss into lifeWhen Kate Inglis’s twin boys were born prematurely one survived and the other did not This is the powerful unspa Notes for the Everlost A Field Guide to Grief is what you will want to read if you have lost a child if you know someone who has lost a child or if you’re a human being I asked a friend of mine to read it She is not a mother whose child has died but she reported that she could not put the book down  During various challenging stages of my life I have reached for books to give me insight and perspective Most of the time these books have annoyed me because of their preachy tone or oversimplification of life Can’t get your baby to sleep through the night? Just let him cry or don’t or let him cry in certain increments  Trouble with your toddler? Just use a sticker chart Struggles in your marriage? Just have weekly date nights  Kate Inglis has somehow written a book about how to navigate the most tragic impossible situation and she has done it without pissing me off   Four years ago my four month old daughter died of SIDS  My husband our sons and I were plunged into a nightmare  Author Kate Inglis knows Her baby died too In her book Inglis speaks to us  I have read many accounts of grief but none written by an author who so intimately connects with her readers  On comparing types of loss she writes “None of it is better or worse It's all shattering reverence for you”  Notes for the Everlost reveals how you can be in one of the darkest rawest most jagged places a human can be–and how you can still find some glimmer of light some smoothness there Inglis's fierce empathy is woven throughout her story How to mourn? Inglis says it dependsMake a pyre of expectations Speak what feels right to speak Be uiet when you need to be uiet Say you're fine when you're not in the mood to talk about why you're not fine Do what you're compelled to do Make someone uncomfortable You have enough to deal with without worrying what people think of your performance You have death to deal with and death has to deal with you and that is enough With vulnerability and stunning articulateness Inglis sculpts a work of truth and beauty  Her message is one of compassion How can I be gentle with myself even though I think I should feel better by now? How can I navigate a reality in which I will see reminders every day where triggers can send me into a panic attack where time makes no sense?  Most importantly Inglis is unsentimentally human–she reveals her struggle her anger her dark sense of humor a key component for bereaved parents And finally her ability to forgive–forgiving those who didn’t understand her and ultimately forgiving herself for being someone who could not protect her child from death
