A plea for advice

Got an email this morning from a lady wanting to know if I could recommend a book to her, something that she could give to a friend who has been in deep mourning – and beyond mourning, has tried suicide, herself – after the death of her 20 year old son. She has promised not to try to do away with herself again, but she’s clearly in trouble and needs some help.

I’ve been wracking my brain, and cannot think of something…I know that I KNOW of such books, but they’re not coming to my head, and I would like to be able to help this lady out…can anyone offer a suggestion for her? Thanks.
