The Father, The Son,
& The Brother's Ghost
A sensitive exploration of common emotions and experiences through the grief that surrounds the unexpected loss of loved ones.
An easy read about a difficult subject, the book also serves as a tribute to the author's late brother, a rising star in the exploding world of computer sciences of the early 1990s.
Her Collected Works
Born in 1902 in Lee County, Zona Chapman grew up on Bear Creek near Beattyville and Canyon Falls, Kentucky. Here she learned of country ways and, thanks to some Missionary school workers, she also heard the luring call of higher thoughts early in life. That led her to write at an early age—one of the most moving pieces collected here was written when she was only 17—and she continued to write and influence and color her world with words until the day she died.
Her son and grandson gathered, edited, and produced this together.
I don't usually give reading material to those who are grieving right away ... but this is one of the books that is certainly going on my list, especially for those who have experienced a tragic or sudden loss...
an Indianapolis Grief and Family Counselor
As someone who lost his father suddenly and unexpectedly seventeen years ago, I nodded in recognition while reading both the initial responses to the death of the author's brother as well as the materials that reflect learning to live with a sense of loss that may subtly change over time but never really goes away.
