Though one in four pregnancies ends in loss, miscarriage is shrouded in such secrecy and stigma that the woman who experiences it often feels deeply isolated, unsure how to process her grief. Her body seems to have betrayed her. Her confidence in the goodness of God is rattled. Her loved ones don't know what to say. Her heart is broken. She may feel guilty, ashamed, angry, depressed, confused, or alone.

With vulnerability and tenderness, Adriel Booker shares her own experience of three consecutive miscarriages, as well as the stories of others. She tackles complex questions about faith and suffering with sensitivity and clarity, inviting women to a place of grace, honesty, and hope in the redemptive purposes of God without offering religious clich s and pat answers. She also shares specific, practical resources, such as ways to help guide children through grief, suggestions for memorializing your baby, and advice on pregnancy after loss, as well as a special section for dads and loved ones.


An eye opening resource


I haven't experienced miscarriage or loss personally but I have had to watch a number of close friends walk through the painstaking journey of loss. Time and time again I struggled to find what to say or how to support them. Even referencing God's purpose or will through it all seemed trivial and impossible at the time. Grace Like Scarlett fills the gaps where I felt I couldn't support my loved ones. I have no doubt it will also fill the void where supportive resources for those grieving also seems to be lacking. Adriel's writing is captivating, easy to understand and eye opening . When she writes about her personal experiences I was in awe of the raw emotions and process that others have gone through. It was heartbreaking to read - but necessary for me to understand. As Adriel begins to tap into her theology behind God, and suffering a lightbulb went off in my mind and heart. This doesn't just apply to miscarriage or the loss of a child — but all loss; all suffering and it was life-giving to understand more about God in the midst of it all. Whether you are a man, woman, brother, sister, mother or father, Grace Like Scarlett is a must read to aid in breaking down the barriers of isolation surrounding those wading through the journey of miscarriage and loss.
