The Empty Room: Understanding Sibling Loss
by Elizabeth DeVita-Raeburn
This unflinching, often haunting recollection of the author's loss of her brother is woven into a larger exploration of the enormous, often unacknowledged impact the death of a sibling has on the brothers and sisters who remain. Drawing on interviews with more than two hundred survivors, this book examines the complex of emotions experienced by these so-intimate family members. The sibling bond and the lifelong impact of its severing are here described and explored as well as the tools needed to heal and move forward.
