A raw, real story about losing your son to suicide. It was written in 1996 so the language... "committed suicide" is included. It includes some details about her son's actual death that may be very hard for some to read.
Gloria Vanderbilt speaks of her remaining son - Anderson Cooper - being the only reason she was able to keep living. This is hard to hear and not a very hopeful message.
An okay book but proceed with caution. It is a very quick read.
