No matter what we write, how we write it is important. This is called tone. The tone that we use in our writing will either connect us to our audience or alienate us from them. When writing about a sensitive subject, it’s so important to speak gently to our audience.
Sarah in Loved Baby connects with her audience using tone brilliantly. That is one thing that I love so much about this book. She speaks with such gentleness into the hearts of hurting mothers and fathers that I’m not sure you can help but feel like you’re sitting on the couch next to her as you swap stories back and forth.
Sarah shows us her heart and the hearts of other women who share their stories. The best part of all, though, is that in the back of the book, there is space for you to write your own story – as much or as little as you want. After spending a month nursing your heart, you have a chance to open it and write down your story.
