A Book that Deserves to be Shared... Mar 13, 2007
I turned to this book after the death of my mother, and it saved me from the depths of my sadness. I appreciated how it began in the early stages, and progressed through what one may be feeling as time passed since the death of a loved one. I found many, many pages that offered excellent insight - by the time I finished I'd turned down perhaps three quarters of the pages! I bought the book for my siblings, and have also given copies to friends who have lost loved ones. For those who use music to help grieve, the CD "Hiding Place" by the Christian group "Selah" was my other salvation - the songs are incredibly healing and seemed to speak straight to my heart as I was struggling. I highly recommend both this book and the CD.
A Time to Grieve Jan 11, 2007
This was one of many books recommeded to us by Hospice for those who are grieving and have lost a loved one. It is excellent, and a book to keep nearby to pick up and read on any page and it is applicable to the reader. jm
A Thoughtful and Comforting Book Nov 1, 2005
"The death of a loved one is, for most of us, the most profound emotional experience we will ever have to endure," writes Carol Staudacher in her book, A Time To Grieve. My dad died in 2001 and my brother died in 2002, and I was overwhelmed with grief.
I found this book to be truly comforting and reassuring. Each page provides a relevant quote to ponder, a short meditation on some aspect of grief, and an affirmation to help face the day. It helped me understand and accept my feelings. It helped me feel less alone. The book is easy to read, yet also addresses the many profound emotions of grief with great understanding.
I read many books on grief before I found this one. If you are suffering from grief and looking for a safe place to find comfort, I highly recommend this kind, insightful book.

One of the best of this genre -- may be read a page at a time, which is very helpful for grievers who are struggling with focus and concentration in the early days.
A very good and helpful book Aug 31, 2004
I was searching for a book to help a friend of mine whose husband died suddenly. I am one of those skeptics of self-help books in grief counselling; many seem to offer little useful advice, suggest 'recipe-like' interventions or even drift to patronizing. Then I came across "A Time to Grieve: Meditations for Healing After the Death of a Loved One". A short reading had me order two copies for good friends of mine going through a very tough time in their lives. Even though logically one knows one is not alone in losing a loved one, it means little when you yourself are suffering the pain of loss. This book gives thoughts and feelings from people who have suffered a loss and follows the real experience with advice on how to work through the moments or hours or days and move on in the healing process. It is well written and the prose are gentle. It is a comforting book and gives one pause to think.
