I've been around and through enough pain and loss to be familiar with the dynamics of grief. How To Help A Grieving Friend has the clear ring of truth. From the first sentence, "The world needs more people like you." the book is intensely personal. I hadn't turned many pages before I was crying out loud, not because she provoked memories of grief but because she touched the loneliness of grief and said, "You aren't the only one. I've been here, too." If grief is a foreign language, then the author is a skilled interpreter. Though her focus is on loss through death, her insights are as pertinent for those whose pain stems from divorce, relocation, loss of a dream, etc. Grace Potts.

My Brother in law passed and my Sister in Law is not only that but one of my BEST friends! I felt so helpless in helping her. This book is short and to the point. If you truly care for someone who is grieving, this is a must read!! Expect to shed some tears! She writes from her heart and experience.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
