The Grief of Others by Leah Hager Cohen

The Grief of Others begins with Ricky and John Ryrie welcoming the birth of their third child. Joy turns to tragedy as the baby dies soon after birth, and John is shocked by the secret Ricky has kept from him. Their marriage suffers as he is unable to forgive her. In their grief, they miss that their children are suffering too. Their son is bullied at school and their young daughter is obsessed with funeral rituals, nearly drowning in the river. John's 23-year-old daughter from a previous relationship arrives on their doorstep, pregnant and homeless. She carries the potential new life into their world of grief. Leah Hager Cohen's novel has received positive reviews with the San Francisco Chronicle saying, "Cohen's empathy is sure-footed and seemingly boundless; her writing gifts its characters with glints of ordinary human radiance. It is the possibility of this glinting that ultimately becomes Cohen's most powerful gift to us, her readers, as well."
