Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Completed just before her untimely death, this powerful book by the author of Widow LJ 4/15/74 provides solace, guidance, and direction for widows everywhere. Drawing from her own experiences, Caine outlines practical suggestions for coping with the devastating loss: finding a confidant; turning to bereavement counseling; helping children adjust through strategies she suggests. Throughout, she emphasizes the need for each woman to rebuild her shattered life in her own way. Corroborating and amplifying her advice are poignant, candid notes from people inspired by her writing, lectures, and media appearances. Caine's direct, articulate writing, full of compassion and understanding, assure a large readership for this special book. Carol R. Glatt, Northeastern Hospital of Philadelphia

    This book really helped me after the death of my husband. The stories included made me feel like I am not alone in the world. I never assumed that I had things bad, and my case certainly isn't the worst, but this book made me realize that I will be okay on my own. I am 32 and have a beautiful child we made to keep me going!
