Book Review: White Knuckle Love

White Knuckle Love: A Memoir of Holding by April Stace is achingly beautiful. Among the shattering moments Stace shares, both in her own life and those she witnesses while companioning others, I found space to touch my own moments of grief, doubt, and pain––and hope. What I love most about memoir is this ability to connect our lives with others however seemingly different from our own.

If you have ever asked the big questions, found your belief system shifting underneath you, been hurt or hurt someone, had your life turn out differently than you planned, suffered a loss, or a million other things––this book is for you. This book is for all of us.

I will be returning to this one again, and soon.
