Publishers Description When a loved one dies it can seem like life will never be normal again. The world can become a blur of flowers, relatives, cards, and well-meaning visitors; and the griever may feel that he or she cannot come up for air. But there is normalcy after death, say authors Zonnebelt-Smeenge and De Vries; it just takes some time--and help--to get there. "Traveling through Grief" takes readers on the journey toward life after death, focusing on five common tasks of grief: accepting the reality of death, embracing all the emotions associated with death, storing memories, separating oneself from the deceased, and reinvesting fully in one's own life. This book is the perfect gift for a grieving friend or tool for a loved one in need.

Helpful Feb 22, 2010
This book was a great read for someone that has lost a close loved one. It not only helped me deal with my husbands death almost a year ago, but it gave me some insights into my dads death 14yrs ago. A must read for someone going thru grief.
practical and spiritual help Dec 28, 2009
I read the authors' grief book relating to the loss of a spouse and it was SO HELPFUL. I use this book in our church as a guide to helping others through grief, since it is not specific to the loss of a partner. Both books are filled with practical advice and spiritual comfort.
Highly Recommend Sep 12, 2009
Terrific book for anyone who has lost a loved one. Their other books are also worth checking out.
