Book Review

Two months ago, my entire world collapsed when my father was involved in a murder-suicide. He killed his beautiful wife, then he killed him self. Devastated by this horrible act, I began searching the internet for ways to deal with my grief. With a stroke of fate, I stumbled across an amazing book entitled “Petal, The Other Side of Suicide” by the incomparable, Tanya French.

In the book, the author describes the devastating turmoil behind losing her husband from suicide. Like myself, the author saw no warning signs - nothing. Her husband, Mark was described as talented, funny, vivacious and the life of the party, just like my dad. Reading this book helped me understand that I’m not alone in my pain. The author teaches you that a life of purpose after suicide is attainable. There are many profound quotes in the book. The one that has helped me the most is ... “I believe that just because someone didn’t love you the way you thought they should, it doesn’t mean they didn’t love you with all they had.” I truly believed this was relevant to my relationship with my father.

The author opens up her life to her audience in this book. She gives practical tools and techniques on how to live your life after suicide. I’m inspired by the author who has managed to navigate her way through life without her husband. She had to be the foundation for her children and her family while dealing with grief herself . What I admire the most about this author is that she did not let her husband die in vain. She has now become an advocate for suicide awareness. Her mission will reach the masses and change countless lives. I’m so grateful that I was led to read this book. It has helped me and changed my way of thinking. I have come to terms with the fact that I will never truly know why my dad killed his wife and killed him self. My quest for answers has ended, thanks to this book. I am now working to build a more meaningful life. I truly believe that this book crossed my path because of higher power. I am a better person today because of Tanya’s wisdom and her openness to share her deepest degree of pain. I rate this book 5 stars.
