Item description for Winter Grief, Summer Grace: Returning to Life After a Loved One Dies (Miller, James E., Willowgreen Series.) by James E. Miller, Jr....

Rarely does a life event cause greater upheaval than a loved one's death. Confusion, anxiety and a huge personal void leave those still living wondering whether they will ever heal. With sensitivity and insight, Miller offers reflective text, 12 nature photos and suggestions for healing activities that can help survivors cope with the grief and begin their lives again.

Publishers Description
Compassionately explores feelings that come with a loved one's death. Discover renewal in the midst of grief with simple, affirming activities. Includes inspiring passages of comfort and hope from the Bible, poetry, and literature. Beautiful full-color nature photographs reflect peace and quiet assurance.

From Publishers Weekly
Miller has combined his own photographs with meditations, poetry selections, scripture, spiritual exercises and quotations from such varied sources as Brother Lawrence and Gaelic prayers to create a roadway through the grief that comes from a loved one's death. His compilation will be a helpful companion or tool for those mourning the anticipated death of a parent, the peaceful passing of a spouse of many years or of an old and trusted friend. There is nothing here, however, that addresses the stunning vacuum left by an abrupt and untimely death of a child or the agony of coping with violent death. Anyone living in that real world will find this collection far too saccharine and far too easy. (Oct.)

Reviews - What do customers think about Winter Grief, Summer Grace: Returning to Life After a Loved One Dies (Miller, James E., Willowgreen Series.)?

Winter Grief, Summer Grace  Jan 15, 2007
This little book was given to me about 2 months after my husband died 10 years ago. It is tremendously helpful in coming to grips with grief. Although there are some spiritual passages, it is not a religious book. It focuses your thinking, as well as citing some positive things things to do. Over this decade I have given away many, many copies to grieving friends. It is always most welcome and appreciated.
Recommended reading for those in grief  Jan 11, 2007
A friend gave this book to me shortly after I lost my 21-year-old son in a car accident. This book really helped me realize I am not alone in my grief. The emotions listed in the book were exactly what I was feeling! I couldn't believe an author could capture the essence of my pain like that. The action items were also very helpful. I have since purchased this book for others who are grieving. I would highly recommend this book!
Appropriate for anyone suffering from grief  Aug 26, 2005
I have sent this book to various people who have lost a loved one and in all cases they were most appreciative. I received this book from my daughter after my husband passed away and read it many, many times as I found consolation in the message.
Source of Comfort  Feb 28, 2003
This book literally helped me make through many an evening after the death of a loved one. James Millers approach to comparing the seasons to grieving was so accurate. As your going through the Autumn of Grief you wonder if you will make it through to the Summer. You do, and this precious book will help to bring you to that bright Summer. The quotations written from other writers are placed strategically throughout the book and address the particular emotions being felt so beautifully. The emotions of grief can be very intense. This book helps you realize that you are not alone in your feelings, that they are normal. I have kept the original copy given to me; and have purchased several for others who have faced Grief. I can't recommend this book enough. It will be a tremendous assist as you go through this terribly LONELY time.
My Guide through Grief  Feb 24, 2003
After the death of my husband, I was given this most excellent book. James Miller's experience as a Grief Counselor and Clergyman came through beautifully. I read and re-read the consoling pages. I cried grieving tears with the assurance that someone knew the depths of the tears and the groanings. Each season of grief is beautifully broken down. The book begins in Autumn and walks with you day by day until finally you have arrived at the summer of your grief.
Throughout the entire book, there are quotations from various writers that just seemed to express the turmoil of mind and emotions that grief causes.
I have given this book to many who have lost someone dear to them.
I know it will help so many work through Grief.
