When People Grieve offers guidance for some of the hardest moments of our lives. Caring for those facing the death of a loved one can be a challenging labor of love. This helpful book offers guidance that every counselor or friend of the bereaved should have. An internationally renowned expert on grief counseling, D’Arcy draws on her own experience of the loss of her husband and daughter. She distills the wisdom that she gained through the process of grieving and shares insights that inspired her to heal and grow in the face of tremendously difficult life lessons.

I am a co-facilitator for GriefShare, a Christian-based support group for those who have suffered the loss of a loved one. This book is wonderful as a resource and I use it all the time. I have often recommended it for those who know someone who has had a loss and they don't understand what they are going through, or perhaps why it is taking them so long to get "over it." In our drive-though culture it seems we want a quick fix for everything, but there is no such thing when it comes to grief. To keep it in perspective, think about your own death--how long would you want to be grieved? Paula D'Arcy has many great books and I own them all.
