The unexpected loss of a child is something that no parent can ever imagine. This book, told mainly from the maternal viewpoint, explores the tragic accidental death of a 19-year-old. Andrea Corrie gives a direct and honest account of the emotions and the practicalities of working through the shock and grief of losing James, a much loved son, stepson, brother and friend. The message of the book is one of hope; its intent is to leave the reader feeling optimistic for the future, not despondent about the past. The non-linear process of working through grief and sorrow is examined. The book spans the eight year transition from the dark days of early loss in 2005 to a gradual return of living in the light today. Andrea also explores some of the resources available, particularly via the internet, to those who are grieving, as well as discussing the most constructive ways to channel energies into overcoming the agonies of child bereavement. Particular attention is paid to TCF (The Compassionate Friends - a charitable organisation run by bereaved parents for bereaved parents) and the online US based group DSN (Drowning Support Network, a Yahoo group). Members of both groups, along with family and friends have contributed, sharing their own experiences. Issues specific to loss through drowning are discussed as is Andrea's successful campaign to institute safety features at the riverside in Kingston upon Thames where her son lost his life. This book offers reassurance to anyone living with loss, demonstrating that it is possible to return to joyful, meaningful living after the death of a child. Its readership need not be limited to bereaved parents as the subject matter provides useful insight to anyone supporting those who have lost a child, as well as those in the caring professions.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An irresistible read that will help anyone who has lost a child 23. Januar 2014
Von Kate - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
A compelling account of life after the unimaginable loss of a child to a drowning accident. The author, Andrea, documents the hours following the disappearance of her 19-year-old son James after a night out, his subsequent discovery in the River Thames 3 days later and the intense grieving journey thereafter.

The reader is lead seamlessly through the ensuing days, months and years of the author's new "normal", offering great spiritual (yet non-religious) insight into a mother's grief and recovery, whilst acknowledging that healing in this sense is not the same as "getting over" it. As most people who have lost a child will agree, you will never get over losing your child, but as the author proves, you can achieve something positive after such an unthinkable tragedy. In Andrea's case, not only did she initiate a campaign with Kingston Council to improve safety along the banks of the River Thames, but she has chosen to be a voice for other bereaved parents in this book, not only to identify with survivors' anguish, but also to educate others about the indescribable pain of child loss. In doing so, she is also honouring her son James.

Also included in the book are the experiences of other parents to add multiple perspectives of coping after child loss.

This book is not just for parents who have lost a child to drowning. I, for example, lost my eldest son to suicide, yet there are always parallels within our grieving processes; the countless - and often unspoken - thoughts and emotions that will resonate with families who have lost a child in any way, in addition to the occasional sensitivity we face from others.

Despite the heartbreaking topic, the pace and flow of Andrea's writing is beautiful, enticing the reader to keep reading, with a measure of tears and laughter, on the journey from darkness into the "mourning" light.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A moving account 29. Mai 2014
Von Nina - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Andrea's account of the loss of her son, James, was a wonderful book. It was incredibly moving to read and surprisingly, made me smile on many occasions. It's style was engaging and fluent and provided an amazing insight into the trauma that can happen to an 'ordinary' family. I got a real sense of James' life and importantly, a sense of Andrea's strength. Her difficult, though positive journey through her grief and into the ' light' was inspirational. I would highly recommend this book, not only for those who have been through a similar experience, but anyone who is interested in seeing how ordinary people cope with extraordinary events in their lives. Thank you Andrea, for sharing your son's life and also for your inspiring, well-written and moving account of your journey after his death.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Through Grief to Hope 30. Juli 2014
Von Story Circle Book Reviews - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Any mother's worst fear is losing her child. Andrea Corrie's son drowned at age 19. In Into the Mourning Light, Andrea takes us with her, step by agonizing step, as she travels the grief path. It is a difficult and painful journey and took great courage to share so explicitly. She does so to honor her child and to give hope to others in similar situations.

One of Corrie's most helpful coping mechanisms was writing. We are with her as she begins with journaling, adds poetry, writes to enact change to prevent future drownings, and finally authors this book to send into the world as comfort and encouragement to others who have lost a child or loved one.

This story is raw and unflinching in its portrayal of the agony of loss. But it is, at its essence, a story about love. Even though she has lost her son, her love for him continues. It is what carries her through the pain to a place where she can remember her son, celebrate his life, and in his memory, help others.

There were a few places I found confusing, mostly when Corrie incorporated others' stories into her own.

If you know of anyone experiencing this kind of loss, I would highly recommend putting this book into their hands. They will recognize each layer of grief and be uplifted by the way Corrie coped. They will find a safe place to pause and process their experience. They will find useful, practical ways to move to a place of healing.

The book gives the lesson of reality to the responsibilities of everyone involved in water safety.
A supervisor of a facility with a pool must realize that everyone must be consciously aware of the possible disruption
in someones life if they are not diligent in their duties.
