The Mockingbird's Song by Wanda Brunstetter

Sylvia has a difficult time getting through each day.  She is in mourning.  How could she ever be happy again?  She is going through the motions to protect her children.  Sylvia believes that she will not have anything to look forward to.

Sylvia's Mother, Belinda, has the world on her shoulders.  She is dealing with her own grief as well as her family's.  She is doing everything to keep her business afloat.

Henry, Sylvia's brother, deals with his loss by rebellion.

The neighbor across the street, Lydia, is dealing with her loss. She resents living in the country and losing her friend.

Grief hits everyone differently.  You can't put a time limit on it.  There are phases that each goes through to get to the other side. This story demonstrates how each member handles their loss and moves forward.

I can't wait to see how the story continues.  Ms. Brunstetter leaves the door open for romance and see if there is hope for happiness.

I highly recommend this book for my friends and family.
