What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

‘The only way we will ever really understand what it means to grieve is when we learn from those who are bereaved and can share their experience with us. This book is a wonderful example of how Rebecca Abrams used her own experience with death and the grief that followed to help herself and others.’ – Phyllis R. Silverman, Ph.D., Co-Principal Investigator, Harvard Child Bereavement Study, USA.
