Did you ever have a period of time in your life when the whole world crashed in on you? Rachael, the principal character in this book had such a time; an entire year of tragic events piled one upon the other.
She finds strength and reassurance from the imagined voices of her never-born children. Her path leads her to write about relentless attacks on her spirit. Along the way she seeks solace from reading about others who have experienced similar loss.
Rachael’s family and friends join her on this exploratory journey. They consider the written works that influence her life. That intellectual exercise morphs into an emotional and spiritual adventure. Perhaps the imagined voices are real. Readers will decide.
As the founder of Reflections Grief Recovery, I look for valuable resources for grieving people. Jackson reveals a world of pain and loss, but skillfully weaves hope and recovery through this novella. I highly recommend this book as an encouraging and realistic view of loss and recovery.
—Louanne Stanton, Grief Recovery Specialist
Neverborn is deep and precise. It is a must read for people searching for spiritual guidance in a confused and broken world. I would personally recommend this novella in counseling situations where women and men struggle with the hard decisions experienced by the characters of this story.
—Craig Watts Scott, Pastor
I’ve never read anything like this story. I suspect that the originality will be appreciated by readers seeking help with excruciating challenges. I plan to include this book as a resource in my Life Sessions course.
—Daniel Elwood Upton, Founder of Life Sessions
