Abstract
Every year, some two million parents in the US suffer the death of a son or daughter. The unnatural sequence of the child's preceding the parent in death creates a wrenching loss and overwhelming emotional and spiritual disorientation. Most of these bereaved parents find relief from their isolation only in the company of others like themselves. The Grieving Garden offers support, understanding, and, ultimately, comfort and hope from those who have sowed the same tears over the death of a child.

An automobile accident that killed his parents and sister has left Mike Scott bitter, without legs, and with little will to live. His aunt Norma provides a home, and his best friend, Robbie, is attentive, but Mike remains deeply depressed. A project researching and writing the 50-year history of Carlton High School helps engage Mike, until eighth-grader Sarah is assigned to help him. Sarah reminds Mike of his little sister, and he works hard to drive her away. But her curiosity, frankness, and indefatigable good humor gradually nudge Mike out of his self-pity, until the day she disappears.
