Miscarriage is so common and yet within our culture it is an unspeakable subject. Women often grieve alone, mourning a child they have never met but whose future they have already imagined. It is a private, hidden kind of grief. A grief that gets gagged, buried, overlooked, dismissed, and stuffed into small corners—only to bubble up at unexpected moments.
In The Sound of Silence twenty-two women speak out about their experiences of miscarriage. These are stories of loss and loneliness, hope and joy, strength and courage, and, most of all, overwhelming love. They are a reminder to all women who have experienced a miscarriage that they are not alone.
