A few weeks ago, my beloved niece Brandee passed away unexpectedly. This has sent everyone who knew her into a tailspin. She was so young and had her whole life ahead of her. And it was so sudden. It is hard to come to grips with the loss. Today's podcast is for Saving Grace about a family who is trying to cope with the sudden loss of a child. Their world is spinning out of control and each is dealing with the loss in his/her own way.

Spencer, Katherine. SAVING GRACE

How would you be able to handle the loss of someone you love? Grace's brother has been killed in an accident and now the world has changed forever. Her parents can't cope with the loss and retreat into their own worlds. Mom gets very involved with the church and has little time left for Grace. Dad spends most of his time in the basement. No one has time for Grace and she is left to deal with the immense grief on her own. But she can't. She find her escape in drinking and hanging out with an unsavory crowd of kids. But through it all, a strange girl named Philomena keeps popping up and helps Grace get back on track. Just who is this strange girl?
