Three stars may be an unfair rating, as the book is well written
Three stars may be an unfair rating, as the book is well written, entertaining, and has, at least in the first 80 pages, some useful information on widowhood and grieving. The concept of a widows' group apart from the all too common support groups (I briefly belonged to one whose purpose seemed to be to find the member who could out-crisis and out-mourn everyone). It is a four star book if you are a widow who is rather cosmopolitan, lives near a large city, and has expendable income.I found the concentration on finding a man overwhelmed the rest of the problems of these widows. Little attention was paid to the details of new home, children's reactions, etc. The book reads like a novel and at that is entertaining.
