Publisher Description

When you can’t eat, pray, or love.
Melissa married her high school sweetheart, launched her career as an emergency doctor, rescued a Golden Retriever, and best of all, expected a baby in July.
Then she delivered a stillborn baby girl.
What do you do when your heart shatters, and you’ve always relied on science instead of religion? What if your friends have no words for you, and you feel absolutely alone in the darkness?
Join Melissa on a fresh journey inward, where even a teaspoon of Buddhism—becoming “Buddhish”—helps her, and all of us, wade through grief and slowly rekindle joy.

"I am a better person and a better Buddhist (whatever that label means) for having read this book."—Barry W. Morris, Author of _The Practical Buddhist_

"A moving look at stillbirth, miscarriage, [and] grief....An accessible introduction to some aspects of Buddhist thought which informed me, a complete novice. By turns wry, sarcastic, self-aware, and heart-breaking, it invites comparison with C.S. Lewis' _A Grief Observed_….Warmly recommended.”—Gregory L. Smith, M.D.
