Finding Jill: How I Rebuilt My Life after Losing the Five People I Loved Most by Jill Kraft Thompson is a true story about a brave woman who lost her family to a tragic accident. When Jill’s family was in Italy, a semi-truck plowed into the minivan that they were riding in. Her husband, two young sons, mother, and niece did not survive the horrific car accident, only Jill and her sister did. Jill was in so much pain after this accident, both physically and emotionally. Her grief was so deep that she did not want to move on with her life without her beloved family. However, in time she became stronger and more courageous. Her faith in God gave her the strength to move on, and she gave herself the opportunity to become happy again by forming a new loving family, while at the same time keeping her other family close to her heart.

Finding Jill: How I Rebuilt My Life after Losing the Five People I Loved Most by Jill Kraft Thompson is a must-read for anyone who is grieving the loss of a loved one. The author had to overcome the pain and suffering of losing five of her closest family members all at once. Most people would probably be so severely depressed for the rest of their lives after a loss this big, but not Jill. She managed to get out of that dark tunnel; she rebuilt her life and found happiness again.
