Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss & Love by Matthew Logelin

The author, Matt, and his wife, Liz, were high school sweethearts. They dated for years, finally got married, and Liz got pregnant. 27 hours after delivering their daughter, Maddy, Liz died from a pulmonary embolism. Within two days, Matt had become a new father and a widower.

This is a sad, true story. However, the excessive and unnecessary use of the f*** word (almost on every page) was very distracting. It added a crass element to an otherwise heartbreaking but sweet story.
