An excellent, down-to-earth, practical, compassionate book about grieving. It is greatly comforting. I like the light touch of humor used; there are enough heavy tomes on grief (which are damned hard to read when you actually are grieving). There is no clinical jargon, and no touchy-feely inspirational sentimentality. The authors through gentle insights and a wealth of human shared conditions, referencing film, poetry, literature, art, and examples from numerous mourners, create a sense of the new normal that grievers face while respecting each person's individual needs and unique approach to the way things are now. I found this to be one of the best books I've read on the subject (& I've read quite a few since my brother died). I highly recommend it to anyone who is grieving the loss of a loved one.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
