Amazon Customer – 5 stars on Amazon – The unexpected and sudden death of a young daughter, sister, niece, and friend is unimaginable in every sense of the word. Tomorrow Comes, written by 19 year old Emma’s mother, is an intimate and honest story of one family’s efforts to cope with a loss that feels, and perhaps is, insurmountable. Through the perspectives of various family members and friends, the reader begins to understand emotionally what he or she might only have previously understood intellectually; that people truly grieve in very different ways. The author’s decision to write this book shortly after her daughter’s death allows readers grieving a loss to find a sense of comfort and normalcy in periods of emotional chaos, numbness, profound sadness, anger, and even laughter. It allows readers to know they are not alone in the realization that questions as simple as “do we still go to Outback for Dad’s birthday?” and as complex as “are you even still a family when you have lost such a huge part of yourselves?” can feel equally overwhelming. Both the content of the book, and the process of writing it, speak volumes to the importance of efforts to “make sense” of an inconceivable loss. Throughout Tomorrow Comes, the reader gets to know Emma as she comes to terms with her own death; not a perfect version of her, but the very same Emma that existed during her life. Her voice is real, relatable, 19 years old. Exploring how Emma, as she always will be, reacts to her own death and to her loved ones’ grief, allows Emma to live on in a way that each of her family members can understand in their own way. This “new” version of Emma provides her family with comfort because it is her voice, as they know it, encouraging them. Witnessing Emma learn the rules needed to navigate her new life while her family is learning how to live after her death illustrates how each member of the Mebane family is experiencing this process together; even at times when they feel less than perfectly on the same page. A major theme of this book is that grieving is incredibly personal processes that will vary greatly even between individuals in a tremendously close family. The author’s gift to the reader is sharing her own honest, loving, heartfelt account of the greatest loss of her life, as she honors her daughter, Emma.
