    Loved the book and highly recommend it to all widows. I just became a widow 6 months ago and I could not put the book down. It helped me understand some of the feelings I am going thru and to find out that others have gone through the same thing. Thank you Becky Aikman for writing this book.

    Important, upbeat and inspiring

    A friend who had lost her husband recommended it, and I was intrigued by the title, so I overcame my hesitation and perhaps even fear--after all, I didn't want to tempt fate--and read this. The loss was difficult--but the overcoming was powerful, and the life lessons are applicable to all of us. Frankly, we will lose people. And most of us will lose our husbands. I know you can't prepare, but this did help me trust there would be an 'after'. And most of all I value the idea of stretching ourselves, of trying new things, moving forward into an unknown and not always chosen future, with grace and strength and joy. Well written and valuable--I recommend it.

    This book was exactly what I needed, a support group in the privacy of my home, while dealing with my husband's sudden death. I am now reading it for the third time. Finding myself, like them, without any widows in my circle, it provided the knowledge and comfort that the myriad of thought, feelings, crazy suggestions from friends are all very...normal in this situation. I am still working from our shared home office, and I pick up the book to be with friends who understand what the process might take, and confirming that there are just no time limits on any of it.

    The book dissects the different women's personalities, presenting differently depending on the situation. So well done, that somewhere in the molding of characters, I found myself, not like any single woman there, but pieces of them all. Tough, lonely, presenting a strong front to the world, but crying in private; wanting a relationship, knowing I had had the best partner I could imagine, and maybe not wanting a lifelong partner ever again. Most importantly, their honesty, humor, and dedication to having a good life is the encouragement I return to. Life can be great even after something like this, and I don't need to feel guilty every time I have fun. Or flirt. Or travel. Or say no, not interested.

    I will continue to recommend this book to everyone who begins to lift their head in relief that one days is finally easier than the last. Before that, it might be too raw. Thank you all for sharing the intimate moments of your journey.
