Thankfully this happens to a comparative few parents, but all parents feel for them, and quietly wonder how we could ever deal with it. Donna Mebane(Mebbin) found a passion for writing through her battle with the loss of her daughter.
Based on a true story of love and family, grief and joy, Tomorrow Comes (Starshine Galaxy, 2014) is inspired by the sudden and unexpected death of author Donna Mebane’s own daughter, Emma. Donna breathes vitality and warmth into Emma’s character, and you’ll find yourself rooting for Emma as she learns to navigate her new world with courage,humor, and an indomitable spirit.
