Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In the health care profession, we see women put themselves last in a crisis and their health deteriorates because of it. This book is a wonderful collection of "life after loss" experiences and how women not only survive, but find a way to thrive."  - Natalie Treadwell, Founder of Food For Life Healthy Lifestyle

"Each testimony gives different insight and understanding into the transition of wife to widow. These testimonies layered together under one cover; offer a needed comfort to a new widow." - Todd D Soper, President, Todd D Soper Financial Services Inc.

"Embodied in each of these women is the strength that it takes to overcome adversity and without question they teach us all the meaning of resilience and survival and they do so in their own words." - Tracy Friars, Lay Worship Leader and Human Resource Consultant

Meet the Author

Mary Francis found parts of herself in the experiences that the other widows had before her. When her husband died he was fifty-three and she was fifty. Twenty-seven years of marriage and then she was single, but she didn’t feel single. In fact she was not married, not divorced and really not single—and so she was a Widow. How odd that seemed!
