Rachel's insight is spot on! The ormat of the book with daily pearls of wisdom is ideal. It offers, comforting, practical advice for anyone dealing with their own grief or that of a loved one. Grieving is a complicated process-but if there were ever a "common sense" approach to understanding grief and getting through it, this is it! Highly recommended.

A friend gave me this book and I absolutely love it. It was the most appreciated & personal gift that I’ve received in quite some time. Each “day” is so real and heartwarming. I think if you are considering this book, you will definitely be happy with it!

This book is great. I recently saw Rachel speak at the Barnes and Noble on the Upper East Side in New York and she is amazing. Clarity is the word I would use--she just makes sense! Grief is so emotional but I came away believing that I can survive this. This book is so refreshing. I recommend it for anyone who is a couple months or even a year removed frpm a loss and needs a little boost of energy or hope.

This book is truly amazing. It reflected the same feelings that I was experiencing, supporting my thoughts and helping me travel through my grief journey. The book was a great savior – a gift that should be given to anyone faced with the overwhelming burden of loss.
