9780143127574: Angel in My Pocket, The : A Story of Love, Loss and Life After Death

After losing her daughter Charlotte to a rare genetic disorder, life for Sukey Forbes is completely shattered. As devastated as she is, Forbes searches for ways to deal with her grief. She wants desperately to recover a full, meaningful life on the private island of Naushon where she and her family live. Forbes begins exploring her family's rich history of spiritual seekers, including her great-great-great grandfather, Ralph Waldo Emerson, who similarly lost a young child.

Book Description Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 210 x 140 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A complex story of love and grief in which [Forbes] comes to live with hope and faith. The Boston Globe Inspirational memoirs and books that offer glimpses into the afterlife hold a deep and enduring appeal for readers of all ages. The Angel in My Pocket is both of these, as well as a rare insider s look at the prominent Forbes clan. After the death of her six-year-old daughter Charlotte, Sukey Forbes struggles to come to terms with grief as she chafes against the emotional reserve and strict self-reliance that are part of her blue-blooded New England heritage. Forbes explores her family s history of spiritual seekers including her great-great-great grandfather, Ralph Waldo Emerson, who similarly lost a young child and later, through a renowned medium, makes a connection with Charlotte on the other side. Hers is a moving story of coping with loss, finding reassurance, and recapturing the joy of living by accepting the gifts of suffering. Bookseller Inventory # AAT9780143127574

Book Description Penguin Books, 2015. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Praise for The Angel in My Pocket "A powerful, uplifting, and fearless look at what happens to a mother when a child dies suddenly, written without self-pity. . . . To walk along with Forbesthrough pain, denial, her past, psychics, support groups, tattoos, and transcendentalismis strangely soul-soothing and ultimately heartening. You can, you see, survive. But getting there may take a while." Chicago Tribune "There is a unique and lovely energy underlying this bookone that stems from Forbes's extended meditation on where Charlotte lands after her death. . . . Forbes's achievement in this book is that her engagement with 'the other side' is thoughtful and, yes, persuasive. . . . The best memoirs depict the movement toward transformation, and Forbes has certainly changed by the end of her book. . . . She has written a complex story of love and grief in which she comes to live with hope and faith." The Boston Globe "A Boston Brahmin who had it all chronicles her experiences dealing with the tragic death of her beloved young daughter. . . . It wasn't until she took a friend's advice to see a medium that she began to accept Charlotte's passing as a form of spiritual transition and understand the depth of her connection to the Emersonian part of her heritage." Kirkus Reviews "What do we do when the unthinkable happens? We have choices, of course. We can break, become tough, allow cynicism to seep into all our broken places. Or, as Sukey Forbes illustrates in this remarkable book, grief can kick the door wide open and let the light in. The Angel in My Pocket is a devastating and beautiful paean to the human spirit." Dani Shapiro, author of Still Writing "How do we bear the unbearable? In this heartbreaking book, a bereaved mother offers an unflinching account of the different ways we grieve and the differentand surprisingways we may begin to heal." George Howe Colt, author of The Big House "I was raised in the Boston area and this book brought back memories of my childhood. I loved the line in The Angel in My Pocket that says 'how important it is to let all the unimportant stuff go.'" Temple Grandin, author of Thinking in Pictures "If your life has ever come to a halt, if you have wondered how to want to live again, if you are looking for hope and longing for courage in the face of grief, if you seek staunch honesty and are keen to hear it from someone who knows firsthand that privilege does not protect you from pain, read this book and know that you are not alone." Laura Munson, author of This Is Not the Story You Think It Is " The Angel in My Pocket is one mother's response to that most visceral question that haunts the bereaved: Where has she gone? With spiritual curiosity and tenacious love, Sukey charts a heartfelt journey that grants grief its peaceful landing on a far shore." Nichole Bernier, author of The Unfinished Work of Elizabeth D.
