Written by a psychologist and bereaved father, The Only Reason to Live is a heart-breaking story of grief and despair experienced by the author and his wife during the first year following the accidential death of their only child.

It describes the suffering that parents endure after a child dies and what each parent must face on holidays and special occasions thereafter.

The author addresses the dark days of depression, sources of guilt and anger, living with grief, the nature of recovery, and why grief may never end. He reveals what helped him the most and what made him worse.

In searching for understanding about death and afterlife, the author leads us on a journey through the major issues that disturb bereaved parents--how the child died, God's possible role, religious doubts, the question of afterlife, longing for the child, and peace of mind.

The title of the book is based on the theme of the impasse--a place in despair where nothing helps us--and how to go on when there is no reason to live.
