KIRKUS REVIEW

A successor to With Wings As Eagles (1953)- the reconciliation, personal and spiritual, to her son's death, has been prompted by the letters of others struggling with grief- that ""area of human experience in which human need is acute, and constructive help scarce"". Mrs. White examines the different attitudes toward death which are often a denial of life, a refutation of God; asserts- even if there are no absolute answers- the universal need for ""this God of love""; argues that there are ""better memorials love can raise than hopeless, black, enduring grief""; affirm that death is a doorway into another phase of life and widens the perception of the unknown and the unseen. In so doing, she offers a reorientation for a time of fear and anger and pain and reassurance which is personalized, accessible and comforting.
