Life Touches Life is the most hauntingly beautiful, honest, and inspiring story of loss, grief, and transformation that I've ever read. Ultimately, it is a celebration of life with all its pain, poignancy, and mystery. Life Touches Life was a wonderful book, really comforting. I read it in less than a day and felt a weight lift after I did. I would recommend this book to anyone who's lost a baby or to who knows someone who did.

Life Touches Life book. Ash discusses the inner changes she faced after the stillbirth of her daughter and delves into spiritual questions that shook her soul. The final message: Epiphanies emerge from the stuff of everyday experience.

Although 26,000 babies are stillborn in the United States every year, stillbirth continues to be a taboo subject. Life Touches Life shatters the silence that has hidden a bane as old as humankind. Lorraine Ash met that silence head-on when, after a trouble-free pregnancy, her baby was declared dead on what was to be her date of birth. After a C-section, Ash fought a fever that raged at 104 degrees and she almost succumbed to the silent B-strep infection that had robbed her daughter of life.Awed by the experience, which was to change her forever, Ash sought solace and perspective in all the old places and found little relief. In her book she tears down the walls of misunderstanding that isolated her in her hour—indeed years—of need. "Shattering the silence is essential if mothers are to integrate their loss into their daily lives," Ash writes. "A child who only existed inside her mother, can continue to spiritually exist there and the two can remain close."Ash discusses the inner changes she faced after the stillbirth of her daughter and delves into spiritual questions that shook her soul. The final message: Epiphanies emerge from the stuff of everyday experience. Hope is here.

This book is the most beautiful tribute to a life of a child Victoria, who despite of her short life here on Earth, that she experienced inside of her mothers womb touched so many lives. While I cried together with Lorain Ash voice through this book, I felt a deep connection with someone who not only understood my pain but gave me hope, that I could heal one day. My loss is not recent, still I miss my daughter every single day only now I could smile when I talk about her.
I have a singned copy of this book and open it once in a while. I gave a copy to a friend who also went through the loss. I also believe that a power of healing of Victoria’s story is universal to the human loss and grief in general. You will never forget this story and it will bring you peace, I promise.

I wish I didn't have to rate this book because I wish I never had to purchase it in the first place. My daughter was stillborn in September 2012 and I tried to get my hands on any material that would help me get through this horrible tragedy. Life Touches Life was a wonderful book, really comforting. I read it in less than a day and felt a weight lift after I did. I would recommend this book to anyone who's lost a baby or to who knows someone who did. This loss is deeply personal, but to know that there are others out there going through what my husband and I are going through gives me strength. Stillbirth is not a rare or uncommon outcome of birth, but no one ever talks about because it's just so freaking sad. If you have experienced the loss of a child, my heart aches for you and I hope you take comfort like I did from this book. You will get through this. It's hard, but you can do it.

This is a reply I gave to a review made by Karas Mum, who found reading the nbook by Lorraine quite difficult to reads being newly bereaved, I had just reviewed this book as I have done many before and find this book to be very informative and spoke to me so much so that I have bought my own copy .. my journey and Lorraines seemed so in tandem, and I do intend to get in tuch with the author, I have included the other comment I made as I feel that I made some points in there.. but the name that Lorraine gave to Victoria her 'sweetlet' was tear jerking as was the whole book as the tears rolled from the first page brilliantly crafted straight from the heart ..Hi Karas Mommy, I have just reviewed Lorraines book for compassionate friends here in the UK as a stillbirth mother, although it is some years now since my son Thomas was 'born' asleep (1993) so I coul read this book, I accept that this may be a difficult book to read for those newly bereaved, I myself searched too for some spiritual guidance and some came from some unlikely and unexpected places, but I remember picking up some books and finding it so difficult to read and get past the first few pages, speaking to a bereaved parent took a lot of courage but to reach out was something I needed to do, but in real trepidation luckily the parent I spoke to (Christmas ~ Thomas was born 18th Dec) was very gentle and understandng and listened without giving me too much of his own history which is what I needed to do and there was no one around who wanted to listen finding it too painful to bear my pain, so I guess somehow we muddle through, don't quite know how, thosew who have to some extent walked in your shoes can empathise as those who have not find it so difficult thinking yu will be 'over it' in a matter of weeks, not the case, we are changed by the experience and there will be a before and an after .. somehow the expereince is integrated but not forgotten, every year I buy an ornament for the tree to commemorate his being, I also do some acts of charity motivated and prompted by him, but it has evolved. I could relate to Lorraine and nhave bought the book myself, perhaps a little further along the line you may be able to dip into it and relate to it to .. but we all have our own unique jour ney through the path of grief no right or wrong way. I remember some poetry seemed to speak to me and a couple fo books but not many and some made me feel worse .. I recall reading Victor Frankls 'Mans search for meaning' and finding pieces of that helpful .. also for me and one that 'fell' open in the library was the Phaedo by Plato and the argument for the existence for life before life ( argument for the existence of the soul) I would love to hear from you as I can think of a few titles, Iwould love to know more a about little Kara, a beautiful name .. sent with love Libby

I read this right after I gave birth to a baby girl born still one month before her due date. This book helped me to understand what was going on with me and it helped me know that I wasn't going crazy I was having normal feelings as I moved through this horrible experience. I sent Lorraine an email to tell her how much her sharing her own experience helped me and she emailed me back! What a wonderful lady honoring her daughter Victoria in such a caring way!

As a bereaved grandmother of a stillborn girl, I found this account to be absolute magic. The author's use of language is lyrical.I could not wait to contact Lorraine Ash and tell her how moved I was after reading her book. This is the kind of book I would give as a gift to a bereaved parent.

Wow. Beautiful and touching and a must for anyone who has lost a child or knows someone that has lost a child.

I was given this book by a Hospice Bereavement Counselor who herself had suffered the death of an infant at term (I dont use the word "Stillborn", dreadful word it is). I read it and bought a few copies to give away and the moms I gave it to bought me more copies and we gave those away and bought more. We now have all the moms hand-write the names of their babies in the front cover so that whoever reads it has a better sense of the ladies who came just ahead of them.

I like books written from a religious perspective but too many of them infer that love for God makes it all not hurt, which just isnt true. This book is respectful of faith but doesnt club you over the head with it. I even like the colorful words they use in the wake of Victorias death...it helps us see the 'real' in their reactions.

I tell my newly bereaved moms to take special notice to how people in the world treat the mom in the book - it helps prepare them for their reentry into the larger world without thier baby.
I really connected with everything that Lorraine Ash wrote. Reading this book after my daughter Abigail died helped me realize that I am not alone and that the emotions that I am experiencing are normal.
