This book is a must read to help you deal with the loss of a beloved mother. It gives guidance and perspective no matter at what age you lose your mother. I read it when I lost mine 15 years ago and I gifted it to a friend who lost her mother recently. She says it is really helping her deal with her grief.

Great Book for helping women deal with the death of their mothers. My sister in law lost her mother and I bought her the book and gave it to her.
