Overview

Widows Peek shows you a magnified view of the unsettling life changes after the death of a husband through the eyes of nine courageous women who share their stories of love, loss and starting over. Being a widow has never been an everyday topic of conversation, but it should be. You will meet these widows who came together to share their personal experiences through intimate accounts, revealing powerful truths and profound discoveries that are inspiring enough to help any woman get through that horrible void.
Although there is loneliness, we are not alone. We have learned that widowhood is a huge, life-altering, but growing experience. We also learned that there is no book written by a group of women for women that details the pain, sorrow, coping, and eventual recovery from the loss of a spouse. The need for such a book is apparent, a book that explores the lives of women transformed by widowhood, in which we share our own unique way of dealing with the death of our loved one. These pages are written with real emotion, warmth, and even with unexpected humor.
Not just anybody can be a widow; it can only and exclusively be … a woman!

The Book Widows Peek is a compilation of memoires from women who have experienced the personal tragedy of losing husbands. These personal accounts are really about the survival of the human condition of life and death. Although this book's primary audience may be intended for women, it is actually an inspiring self-help book for those of us, male or female, who have experienced the pain of loss, personal tragedy, and or death. The culmination of each account focuses on the rebirth of the person as well as a demonstration of  the human beings' competitive spirit and unwillingness to quit on life. These women showed why having faith, goals, and a positive attitude have sustained them today. The road back from perosnal tragedy and loss can be frustrating, depressing, and long lasting. However, this book demonstrates what is possible with support of family and friends. The priciples and dilemmas in this book are appropriate for us all as we travel through our own long distance race. Read this book: reflect and realize that we all are more alike than we are different.
