This book was very helpful to me when my grandmother died and again when I lost my father. It helped me to feel less alone and isolated during those dark times. Since I found this book, I have given it to everyone I know who has lost a loved one. The people who have read it said the book gave them permission to grieve in their own way and in their personal time frame. Many of those people have started sharing this book with their friends as well. Gifting this book to others always makes me feel that I am doing something at a time when I can do nothing else.

Not as specific of a subject, as it has a lot of dealing with "other" subjects.. needed more specific dealing with loss of a spouse.. but it was helpful in sections.

A very good book to help you realize your feelings are normal. Grief is a journey that no two people journey in the same path. Your emotions are yours and yours alone. Lets you know when your feelings can lead to more in-depth concerns (sucide, alcohol, etc.) It helps you manage your feelings and accept the death and start healing. Guides your journey to living again.

i was given this book when my fiancee died 5 years ago.a friend saw it in te b&n locally and gave it to me about a year after he died. i wish i would have had it sooner but no one was aware of it. when my friends daughter died i loaned her my copy-she ended up buying one for each family member. i am buying 3 today for my mom,sister and neice-my father died yesterday.
