The loss of something that might have been torments with lost potential. “Baby Dust” is a novel following many women as they try to cope with the loss of their babies before they truly had a chance of life. Set around a support group of grieving mothers-would-be, Deanna Roy speaks on the torment that many women face when they lose what they value most. “Baby Dust” is an excellent and much recommended read.
Baby Dust sheds a light on the all-too taboo subject of miscarriage in a raw, compelling, and incredibly realistic way. Women who have experienced a loss themselves will surely resonate with the characters in the book as they work through the many struggles that come out of losing a pregnancy, including marital challenges, changing friendships, and feelings of intense jealousy, sadness, and shame.
Miscarriage is something that directly affects literally a quarter of the women in America, yet it’s rarely spoken about. I am so happy that through Baby Dust, women who have suffered through pregnancy loss will find validation that they are not alone, and that the feelings they are experiencing are completely normal.
Absolutely stunning, compelling, and unlike any other book related to pregnancy loss that I have read. The author, Deanna Roy, has taken stories of loss and turned this book into a novel. This is real life.
When you hear a woman’s heartwrenching story, she normally leaves out great detail. This book tells it all; the truth of what women go through before, during and after a pregnancy loss. Very touching novel and the writing is fantastic. I could not put it down.

This book is different than anything I have ever read before about the loss of a baby… Grief isn’t painted as a pretty picture in this book, but as something that is real and that affects far more women than people realize or care to acknowledge.

This book is a MUST READ. Once I started reading the book I wanted to keep reading it until I finished. I became involved in each of the characters and hoped for them like I do for any of my baby loss friends.
