This is Ann's story of losing Grace, her funny, smart, beautiful five-year-old daughter suddenly in 2002. When she submitted an essay to Tin House for their theme issue on Lies, it was the first thing she wrote after Gracie died. They published it under the title Comfort

That essay won a Pushcart Prize and was selected as one of the 100 Notable essays of that year, as was, Now I Need a Place to Hide Away, which was published in the Modern Love column in The New York Times.

The responses to those two essays and another about knitting and grief that ran in Real Simple, showed Hood that she wasn't alone, stumbling through grief, and re-affirmed to her that people need to know that very thing.

She didn't set out to write a memoir. She set out to show how, bit by bit, she made her way through this terrible journey of grief, and found her way back to hope and love.
