Although 26,000 babies are stillborn in the United States every year, stillbirth continues to be a taboo subject. Life Touches Life shatters the silence that has hidden a bane as old as humankind. Lorraine Ash met that silence head-on when, after a trouble-free pregnancy, her baby was declared dead on what was to be her date of birth. After a C-section, Ash fought a fever that raged at 104 degrees and she almost succumbed to the silent B-strep infection that had robbed her daughter of life.
Awed by the experience, which was to change her forever, Ash sought solace and perspective in all the old places and found little relief. In her book she tears down the walls of misunderstanding that isolated her in her hour--indeed years--of need. "Shattering the silence is essential if mothers are to integrate their loss into their daily lives," Ash writes. "A child who only existed inside her mother, can continue to spiritually exist there and the two can remain close."
Ash discusses the inner changes she faced after the stillbirth of her daughter and delves into spiritual questions that shook her soul. The final message: Epiphanies emerge from the stuff of everyday experience. Hope is here.

Review:

"Life Touches Life is the most hauntingly beautiful, honest, and inspiring story of loss, grief, and transformation that I've ever read. Ultimately, it is a celebration of life with all its pain, poignancy, and mystery."
