Why? When Both My Parents Took Their Lives
When she was only seven, Yin's mother took her own life. Forty years later her father jumped to his death. This is the story of how she survived her parents' suicides.
“When someone dear to us dies through suicide, we are left with the agonising ordeal of having to survive the heart-rending loss. It traumatises us and leaves us with a profound struggle to make sense of the suicide and learn to live again. This first-hand narration promises not only to enlighten, but also serves as a balm for those working through their own loss and grief.”— from the foreword by Anthony Yeo
