Rose hopes to bring readers a better understanding of suicide’s lasting effects. She also aims to give hope to those that are reeling from their own experiences with losing someone, as she says acceptance and forgiveness are always possible.

According to the Livestrong organization, suicide is the third leading cause of death among teenagers and the 11th leading cause of death overall in the United States. For Sheralyn Rose, this is more than a statistic: it’s a reality.

Rose discusses her experiences following her husband’s suicide and shares the stories of other suicide victims in her new memoir, “Suicide Tsunami: Living in the Aftermath” (published by Balboa Press AU).

“Overwhelmed by the suicide of my husband, I was driven to seek answers to what appeared to be unanswerable questions,” Rose says. “I began an insatiable search for information about what motivates someone to commit suicide.”

Rose says suicide not only results in the loss of a life, but also a stigma and extreme amounts of grief for the family of the victim. In “Suicide Tsunami,” Rose shares her own story and those from others around the world who have lost someone to suicide. She discusses their feelings immediately after the event, the healing afterward and the challenges they faced from others.

By sharing numerous individuals’ experiences with the fallout from suicide, Rose hopes to bring readers a better understanding of suicide’s lasting effects. She also aims to give hope to those that are reeling from their own experiences with losing someone, as she says acceptance and forgiveness are always possible.
