Author Sally Gerth lost both her husband and only child within a two-year span. With this double blow came a “new normal” and many decisions. Sally could either “sit it out” or “dance” into the future—a metaphor for the choices we make as we cope with grief.

People wonder how she bears it, and the answer is: She chooses to dance! Her poignant, funny, and gung-ho journey is both a tribute to her departed family members and a resource for those facing the most challenging life and death scenarios. It hasn’t been easy. She shares insights into a perfectly imperfect marriage haunted by a mistress named “alcohol,” and her husband’s life-changing recovery. Written from a mother’s perspective, Sally celebrates her “carbon copy”—a son who lit up her world and produced her wonderful grandchildren. Suddenly both her husband and son were gone. Now what?

Refusing to be a victim, Sally honors Lou and Michael by living the life they would want for her, a life full of “Bucket List” moments and new adventures. Sally chronicles the steps she took to blossom into the woman she is today. “My best friends weighed in and pre-eulogized me,” says Sally of this collaborative memoir. “But the true mission of Sit It Out Or Dance is to help others heal.”

A sprinkling of faith, a dose of chutzpah and a positive mindset fill the pages. This must-read book is a testament that you, too, can find joy after deep loss. Follow along at The book is a wonderful resource for anyone facing the unthinkable.

I can't imagine losing a husband AND an only child in a year and a half! Sally Gerth not only coped with this double tragedy, but managed to rally. Her life sounds a heck of a lot more fun than mine... because she works at it. She cherishes friendships, helps others, works two jobs and STAYS BUSY. Most of all, she's chasing a Bucket List and is checking off her adventures one at a time. What a remarkable case study in overcoming! Life is for the living -- that's the lesson. This is the best self-help book out there for people struggling with grief.
