Reluctantly Home - Imogen Clark - A Short Summary and Review


A Short Summary of Reluctantly Home:

Learning to live after the death of a child.

My favorite Imogen Clark quote from the book:

"There were so many more important things to life, not least being alive."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Do you have a secret?

Have you hidden from the world?

My review of Reluctantly Home:

A touching story about learning to live after a tragedy.

A how-to guide for getting over what you can't get over.

*Potential PTSD triggers* proceed with caution.
