ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: We Go On
Author: Regina Walker
Release Date: June 12, 2020
Genre: Inspirational Fiction
Content Warning: This book deals with loss by suicide and the grief a family endures.
Life has been comfortable for the Miller family. Liz and Josh have devoted their lives to raising their two sons. Their oldest son, Colby, reached adulthood and set out on his own. A few hard knocks sent him back to live with Mom and Dad until life got to be too much, that is. As Liz and Josh grapple with the hole in their hearts left by Colby’s early departure from this world, they find themselves at odds with one another and with their faith.
Will they remember that Jesus is enouMgh in the middle of this dark storm? Will they see through their own pain and help each other and their teenage son, Tyler, learn to live despite the grief?
We Go On is a genuine, well-written story about the individual struggles of a family grieving after the tragic loss of their son to suicide. The story begins with tragedy, but as time goes on, it becomes a beautiful testament to the real-life challenge of continuing life without the ones we love. The author did an amazing job of showing the range of emotions associated with grief and talking about how it’s possible to continue to live and even enjoy life after such a loss.
This topic is so relevant today, and I applaud the author for breaching a subject that is often kept in whispers. It is important to remember and reach out to people in the grief as this book reminds us. And by traveling the path of grief with Liz and Josh, I got a better idea of what life is like for those who wake up with the burden of grief every day.
I enjoyed this story to the very last page and shed several tears along the way. It is a story that will challenge you, but also a story that will inspire you–both to be grateful for every day we have with loved ones and to reach out to those who are grieving.
I was given a copy of this book by the author with no expectation of a positive review. All opinions are my own.
