Blog Tour Stop for Borrowed Angel by Erica Kiefer

I am happy to be the first stop on the blog tour for the book launch party!
Here is the synopsis from Goodreads:
“A day at a time, a week at a time, we hoped we would survive this.”

Borrowed Angel is the poignant story of a mother who lost her first child to sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). In this captivating book, the author describes her journey through the gauntlet of grief and reveals how hope can be found even amid tragedy.

Weaving spirituality with a practical approach to healing, Borrowed Angel reflects on motherhood, the grieving process,
and the power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ.
Christina's Review: Borrowed Angel by Erica Kiefer is a heart-wrenching and heart-warming story. It is non-fiction and is a very personal account written by Erica after she lost her baby who died from SIDS. I was in tears from page one. I could only read a few pages at a time so that my kids wouldn't ask me what was wrong. It started off so heart-wrenching as you read the account of her baby's death. As the book describes their grief and the ways they cope and hold tight to the gospel the mood of the book changes slightly and becomes heart-warming. She talks about the things that happened to help her after her son died, the people Heavenly Father put in her path to help her.  It is a really good book; full of hope and reminders to cherish the time we have with our loved ones. You feel her testimony through her words. There is life after death. Families can be forever! Even if you haven't suffered a loss this is a really good book. She has really good insights. It was a good reminder that our time on earth can end at any time. We don't know how long we have to hold our precious ones close. I know after reading this I gave each of my children more attention and a little extra love because I could. When you read this book have some Kleenexes nearby!
