Reviewed by Christine Nguyen for Readers' Favorite "Stunned by Grief" is a self-help book written not by an expert, but by a so-called grief traveler who has experience with her husband tragically dying unexpectedly of a heart attack. The book is split into various parts so that the reader has many options: reading it chapter by chapter, going to the chapter/section that they want, or going back and forth. After every chapter there is a “Thought to Write About” section and “Hope Thought,” which helps the grievers answer hard questions in a journal and to be inspired by many quotes. The book is also full of very useful quotes from the Bible, quotes from other authors, poems, other grievers' own grief accounts/stories, and the author’s own personal journey. Author Judy Brizendine writes a very comprehensive, thorough book about grief through her own struggles with going through the grief process. It is written with empathy, compassion, a deep insightfulness, and deep religious beliefs about God. Even if you are not religious, this book can really help grief travelers go through each step of their recovery process. I chose this book to help better understand my cousin’s journey through grief as her father passed away last year – and it really helped me to get a glimpse into this difficult journey. It also provided tools to help her through this difficult time. Only someone going through grief can fully comprehend the full magnitude of its deep pain, but this is a wonderful resource to have with you at all times through the grief process. I would highly recommend it to anyone going through this difficult time as the advice is straight forward and offers a light at the end of the tunnel. Exceptionally well-organized and helpful! A MUST HAVE!

I really appreciated this book as a way to get through loss. In one year, I lost a close friend to death, and then a spouse to divorce. This book gave me some great tools to dealing with these life-shaking change. It also shed some great light of understanding on my grief and recovery. Thanks so much for this book Judy Brizendine. Was a very helpful read!
