BlogHer Book Club: The Rules of Inheritance
The Rules of Inheritance, by Claire Bidwell Smith.
I've never lost a parent, but after reading Claire's Memoir, I now know exactly how it might feel. Through out the book I found myself crying, and my heart sinking and then lifting again. I felt like I was living her life with her. I especially loved that she broke it up into section's, Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance. In those sections or parts of the healing process she jumped back and forth in time. In ways I found myself shaking my head, relating to certain times in her life.
If you have suffered a loss, this is a must read. And if not, I still think you should read it, it is the most genuine heartfelt book I have ever read.
