Whether from a sudden accident or a slow, terminal illness, the death of a parent is devastating to adults and children alike. In Losing a Parent, Fiona Marshall helps readers understand the process of coping with a parent's death, from preparing for death to recognizing the different stages of grief, from nurturing the relationship with the surviving parent to harnessing new strength to carry on with life. Wise, compassionate, and practical, Losing a Parent is an invaluable source of support for a time of overwhelming loss.

I have not read as much of this book as I thought I might as more seems to be towards long illnesses. My father passed quickly and I needed something else.

After my father died in 1998 I fell into to the 'I have to be strong for everybody' and it just about took over my life. I didn't buy the book until 2000 and I bought it by chance and thought that this book really could have come in handy back in 1998. I have recommended it to many people that feel that same way about this book. It is an excellent reference. Thank you Fiona Marshall for writing a book like this one!!
