Shadow Child: A Woman's Journey Through Childbirth Loss by Beth Powning

Shadow Child: A Woman's Journey Through Childbirth Loss

(From Penguin Random House)

Like many young women, Beth Powning faced decisions of whether and when to start a family. Ambivalence gave way to dreams for a baby, and at age twenty-four she became pregnant. But eleven days past her due date, she delivered a perfect, stillborn son. In this beautifully wrought exploration of motherhood and loss, the acclaimed New Brunswick writer takes us on a powerful journey into the heart of grief and renewal.
