Look for Because of Grace: A Mothers Journey from Grief to Hope in early 2015.
Every mother fears losing her child. When that horror became a devastating reality for author Jane Daly, everything she believed in became distorted. As she tried to come to grips with a life that would never be normal again, Jane found God’s presence leading her from the pain of loss to the peace that passes all understanding. Take a walk with Jane Daly through this story of sorrow and healing, and experience the touch of God that ultimately carried her from grief to hope.
This book offers an honest and unfiltered glimpse into a mother’s grieving process. Women who have experienced the loss of a child will find it helpful and repayable. I’m proud of Jane for opening up her heart with such honesty and vulnerability.

“Losing a child is the most heart-wrenching trauma a human being can ever experience. Jane Daly knows—she lost her beloved son, Bobby, to cancer when he was too young to die. Many who face such loss would be lost themselves, never to speak of it, never to come to grips with the awful reality, never to share with someone who had faced the same struggle. Not Jane. Instead she has given us Because of Grace, a headfirst dive into the dark pool of pain, agony, anger, fear, and despair that confronted her. But she doesn’t drown in it. Instead, with beautifully crafted words and an open heart, she takes us sailing on an unforgettable journey that ends where it began—in the loving arms of a God who was with her every step of the way. Beautifully done, a must read.”

“When grief comes our way, we feel alone . . . lost. It’s then that we can appreciate comforting words from someone who has already walked the path leading from grief to grace. Jane has made that journey. Her experience bolsters us during the hardest days.”
