In 2014, Lindsey Rogers-Seitz's son, Benjamin, died of heatstroke after being left in the back seat of a car all day. In her memoir, Lindsey chronicles the aftermath of her son's death, writing with raw emotion and grit about the pain, love, and forgiveness that she and her husband experienced.
Lindsey also writes about her personal experiences with manic depression and the support she found in her marriage. She describes the media scrutiny and public judgment that the family faced, as well as their struggles with the legal system and child protective services.
After years of reflection and healing, Lindsey finds her path to self-acceptance. She writes that the love she found in her son's life gave her the power to love herself. This is the gift of Ben.
