Overview

In this honest and touching book about her first year of widowhood, author Susan Beer explores the moments of heartache, fear, anger, grief, and, later, awareness and courage that she experienced after her husband's sudden passing.

Each insightful essay in Move on Without Me captures Susan's emotional exploration and addresses the power and strength of a woman to move forward during a time of enormous life change. She discusses such topics as the importance of expressing gratitude, managing friendships and handling regret.

With sensitivity, Susan raises questions that many women have been asking for years such as, what does it mean to be a "widow?" How do I come to terms with the past, the present, and the future?

Move on Without Me is a refreshing, inspiring book that offers hope and encourages the reader to find her own answers. It is a welcome companion for any widow seeking to embrace life again, and it is also a helpful guide for anyone who is divorced, separated, or trying to come to terms with the loss of a partner.
