    4. Heartbreaking and inspirational in turns. A very rare glimpse into the reality of the culture behind what mainstream fiction, movies, and TV like to warp out of shape.It takes a small step in the right direction and this book should be the start of that journey or at least added to it.

    5. I was profoundly moved by this book, in fact moved to tears during parts of it. Kenn has given us a precious gift by allowing us into the pain and beauty of his grief and his struggle and his journey, a journey that is by no means finished. The intimacy and dialogue with his son is incredible, and I love that he and his son continue to communicate.

    6. Heartfelt and raw. A story of one man's journey through the loss of his child. Bursting with Indigenous culture, history, and emotion. Excellent read with a rare, but eye opening perspective.

    7. My review from the back cover: "Raw, honest, and unafraid, When My Son Died is the story of a man’s deepest loss, written in the tongue of his own cultural grief. It is a visceral look into a man’s pain and his fight to thrive."I am still so moved to have been able to have been a small part of this. I hope you will read Kenn's book for his unique perspective on grief and recovery.
