Lessons From the Ledge: A Little Book
About Big Stuff

There is no manual for survivors of suicide. No rules to help those left behind navigate their grief and anger. When her husband disappeared, her entire life was upended. And since she’d recently asked for a divorce, her husband’s family —and the police — were suspicious. There were no clues. No answers. No reasons she could grab hold of. Months later, when his remains were found in a nearby park, she realized she’d been wrong. And that she and her children would have to begin the life-long process of learning to survive suicide.
