Overview


“I have rarely seen anything as direct and, in this way, as effective.” Family Circle

This modern classic now takes its permanent place in the literature of death and dying, and is still the best book for anyone learning to live with the loss of a loved one. Thousands of widows, widowers, counselors, psychologists, social workers, health care providers, ministers, and hospice workers have found The Grieving Time to be one of the most helpful books in their libraries. Medical and nursing schools, as well as university courses on death and dying use it as a textbook. Short, direct, and intensely moving, The Grieving Time describes a personal journey of universal significance.

Like the millions of people who face the loss of a loved one, Anne Brooks looked desperately for something to read that would offer comfort after her husband’s death of cancer at age sixty-four. All she found were books about the stages of death and dying, religious tracts and sentimental poetry. Nothing addressed the deeply personal side—the loneliness, the apprehensions abut independence, and the monumental task of piecing one’s life together again. Anne Brooks wrote this deeply affecting memoir to create a therapeutic tool for her recovery. Her inspirational message provides the solace and courage to mourn a loss and rebuild the future.
