The Empty Room: Surviving the Loss of a Brother or

Sister at Any Age

By Elizabeth DeVita-Raeburn

 

    The Empty Room is the story of my life with Ted, my older brother and best friend. On a September morning when I was six, I woke up--and Ted was gone. He would spend the next eight years isolated beyond a clear, plastic curtain in a bubble room, where I could see him, talk to him, but because of the risk of infection, never touch him.

    I have interwoven my story with the stories of many others who have lost brothers or sisters. Before I found them, many had never had the chance to speak of their loss. The Empty Room recounts their stories, and mine, giving all of us a way to reclaim our lost brothers and sisters.
