Waiting for Cover of the book MY SON...MY SON...

By Iris Bolton with Curtis Mitchell

This book was inspired by the suicide of Curtis Mitchell Bolton, 20-year-old son of the author, Iris Mitchell Bolton.

Mrs. Bolton describes in detail the journey she made from the devastation of losing her son Mitch by suicide to the step by step healing that took place in her life.

The book is hopeful and helpful to those who have suffered any loss from death, divorce, or separation. It gives promise of recovery and healing and learning to live with the terrible event.

Written in 1983, MY SON...MY SON... is now in its 18th printing. This book ships to countries all over the world, from Australia and New Zealand to England and South Africa. It is being used as a teaching guide for students in colleges from California to Maine. Ministers, priests and rabbis have found the book helpful as they minister to those who have suffered any loss.

Originally available only in paperback, the entire book was studio recorded by Iris Bolton in 1995. The audio edition on four cassettes provides an even greater opportunity for those dealing with grief to hear in Iris's own voice the inspiring message of hope, help and health. The book is available in the four cassette audio edition, hardback edition and the paperback edition.
