A Hand to Hold: Helping Someone Through Grief by Lauraine Snelling

We are not taught how to grieve, and yet grief comes to every one of us at some time. Bestselling author Lauraine Snelling discovered this truth when she began her own journey with grief in 1985, the year her twenty-year-old daughter, Marie, lost her battle with cancer. In this nonfiction book, A Hand to Hold, Lauraine helps us release the fears that make us uncomfortable around those who grieve. She urges us to offer those who grieve the gifts of touch, tears, talk, and time. Lauraine also includes helpful, honest words of encouragement from some of her writer friends, including: Birdie L. Etchison, Mona Gansberg Hodgson, Tracie Peterson, Karen Steinlight, Kay Marshall Strom, and Stephanie Whitson.
