Widowhood Is Not Funny: A Guidebook for the New Widow by Alanna Kvale
Widowhood Is Not Funny is a Guidebook for the new widow. The new life of a widow is a damn hard journey and the best travel guide is another widow. This Guidebook is written by someone who has been there and done that, someone who has been through the Five Stages of Grief and knows how difficult life is after losing one’s husband. The new widow needs help from someone who knows how to get to acceptance. A New Widow especially needs to know she’s not alone, that there is someone who understands, someone who knows how afraid she is. She needs someone to hold her hand and lead her through the obstacle course she will encounter on this journey. Friends and relatives mean well, but they don’t really understand what she needs or how to help her. This Guidebook is intended to help the new widow find her new purpose and show her that there is still joy to be found, that happiness again is possible.
