Discover God’s Grace after Pregnancy Loss

Available Now!

A Note from the Author: “Maybe your grief is fresh and raw and you’re still reeling from the suffocating blow of a recent miscarriage. Or maybe you’ve long ago buried a secret grief, but something within is probing you to lean in closer to the pain once again. Grief is wild like the sea, but it doesn’t need to destroy us. We can’t conquer it, but we can navigate it, and we can find Jesus there too. Dive in, friend. Come with me. Let’s go deep.”

—Adriel Booker


Hope and Healing after Miscarriage or Loss

Miscarriage is shrouded in such secrecy and stigma that many women are left feeling deeply isolated, unsure how to process their grief. Your body seems to have betrayed you. Your confidence in the goodness of God is rattled. Your loved ones don’t know what to say. Your heart is broken.

With vulnerability and tenderness, Adriel Booker shares intimate stories about her experiences with miscarriage to help you navigate your own grief and know you aren't alone. She tackles complex questions about faith, suffering, and God’s will with sensitivity and clarity, devoid of religious clichés or pat answers. Ultimately, Adriel invites you to a wide-open place of grace, honesty, and genuine hope as you discover a redemption story unfolding in the shadows of your loss. She also includes a practical resource section for ways to help guide children through grief, advice on pregnancy after loss, and special sections for dads and loved ones.

“Adriel writes with the authority of one who has endured suffering. She is a gifted teacher and a brave leader into the darker realms of faith. As she discusses the transformation that grief brings into our lives, she also acknowledges and then shoos away blame, comparison, false guilt, shame, and isolation. Though it’s been years since I’ve experienced miscarriage, this book helped me remember and even shined a light into other areas of suffering that I hardly know how to address.”


Amber C. Haines, author of Wild in the Hollow, from the foreword

“When I experienced the loss of a pregnancy I wanted two things in that place of pain. First, to know that I was not alone in it. Second, to believe there was hope. Adriel Booker offers both in Grace Like Scarlett. I wish I’d had this book years ago.”


Holley Gerth, bestselling author of Fiercehearted and What Your Heart Needs for the Hard Days

“Adriel lifts the chin of the tearstained face heavenward with the reminder that Jesus is making all things new and that beauty will rise from ashes. There are few resources for individuals or churches that I have found to be this succinct and powerful—I wholeheartedly recommend it!”


Ken Wytsma, pastor and author of The Myth of Equality and The Grand Paradox

“This powerful book is more than a book. It’s a permission slip to feel what you need to feel. I’ve walked with several friends through their own miscarriages, and I have always wished that there was more that I could offer, do, or say. Grace Like Scarlett is ‘the more.’ This book is a wise and compassionate companion for moms who are grieving the child they never got to hold.”


Jennifer Dukes Lee, author of The Happiness Dare and Love Idol

“Adriel is one of the biggest-hearted people I know, and the purity of her conviction comes through with every word she writes. I know her story will touch the brokenhearted and stir the souls of those who need it most.”


Tsh Oxenreider, author of At Home in the World

“In Grace Like Scarlett, Adriel does the hard work of excavating her experience of excruciating loss. Her words keep perfect balance as they dance along edges—grief on one side, joy on the other—never falling into despair or the platitudes of easy faith. Unflinchingly honest, unquestionably authentic, and unashamedly human, Grace Like Scarlett is a must-read for anyone who has or will endure suffering—which is to say, all of us.”


Seth Haines, author of Coming Clean: A Story of Faith

“My heart has long been crying out for a book like this, and Grace Like Scarlett is a beautiful answer to that prayer. Adriel Booker offers such clear, comforting, and compassionate words to the woman who is walking through deep loss. Not only will she find hope and consolation in these pages but it will feel like she’s found an understanding friend. I highly recommend this powerful and practical resource for anyone who is experiencing the lonely grief of miscarriage.”


Lisa Jacobson,

“Adriel Booker is a midwife and a griefwalker. In Grace Like Scarlett she takes the reader’s hand, walks into the womb of loss, and sits down knee-to-knee with the brokenhearted. See this work if ever you’ve needed someone to go with you, be with you, hold you . . . and give voice to your speechless, aching places. This book is blood, air, food, and friend.”
