Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER "A masterpiece of hope, love, and the resilience and ferocity of the human spirit."—Glennon Doyle Melton, from the foreword "Profound, tender, honest—and utterly unforgettable."—Gretchen Rubin "I wish I had nothing to say on the matter of loss, but I do. Because one day I encouraged my two kids to go out and play in the rain, and only one came home. . . ." On an ordinary September day, twelve-year-old Jack is swept away in a freak neighborhood flood. His parents and younger sister are left to wrestle with awful questions: How could God let this happen? Can we ever be happy again? In Rare Bird, Anna Whiston-Donaldson unfolds a mother's story of loss that leads, in time, to enduring hope. This is a book about facing impossible circumstances and desperately wishing you could turn back the clock. It is about discovering that you're braver than you think. It is about the flicker of hope and the realization that in times of heartbreak, God is closer than your own skin. With this unforgettable account of a family's love and longing, Anna will draw you deeper into a divine goodness that keeps us—beyond all earthly circumstances—safe.
