Expecting Sunshine: A Journey Of Grief, Healing, And Pregnancy After Loss
Expecting Sunshine tells the story of a mother, Alexis Marie Chute, who set out to rediscover her identity -" not only as a parent but as a woman and artist -" after her son Zachary died in her arms at birth. The memoir’s clever structure mirrors the gestation of Alexis Marie’s subsequent pregnancy; the book beginning with conception followed by three sections, the three trimesters.
Through powerful flashbacks, readers learn of Alexis Marie’s pregnancy with Zachary and his few moments in the world, witnessing how grief touches every aspect of family life, though in different ways.
