Long Synopsis

Emily was oh so very happy! She loved school. She loved her pup. And she especially loved her family! But one day the very worst thing happened. Emily lost someone she loved. And after that nothing, not one single thing, felt the same.

From debut author Kathleen Fucci comes a story about adorable, vivacious Emily and a loss so big it threatens everything she knows. But one night when Emily cries out, “Where is God?!” she learns He is much closer, and loves her so much more, than she ever realized. 

Emily Lost Someone She Loved communicates real emotions children feel when they lose a loved one. Ithelps them to see that God both knows and cares how they feel. Author Kathleen Fucci explains: “Losing a loved one, at any age, is devastating. But for a child, it can lead to fears, insecurities, bitterness, loneliness, isolationism and estrangement from God – scars that can last a lifetime. I hope this book will be a resource for both the grieving child and surviving parent or caregiver. It’s a book that can be read over and over again, restoring faith in God and hope for the future.”
