I received this book for free from Author Gifted in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I figured with it being October and all that I should start at least reading some horror stories. This is a short story, and it is sad, scary, and utterly terrifying when you sit and think about it.
This story is based around a couple whose daughter was Still Born. It follows the excitement of the baby shower, to the depression following the death of their daughter and the remembrance of her life by her parents when they go into her decorated room. The author did a good, albeit sad job at describing what occurs when pain overrides your life and then for a split second you feel that the lost pieces have returned and you can carry on.
It is not all roses though, and with every piece that returns, a piece of themselves and their humanity is lost, leading to the depths that depression can go and the lengths that humans will go to preserve what they want their brain to believe. I enjoyed it, although it was sad, and I had to read the last couple of pages twice because at the first time I wasn’t really sure I read what I thought I read. So I went back and read the last two pages, and yes, I was right with what I read the first time, and it just made me sad. It is super creepy as well, and honestly my brother has a monitor and after I read this short story I was creeped out when I looked at it.
