Life changing Mar 25, 2008
This is an amazing book for anyone suffering from a major loss or life change. Although the prayers reference the bible, the book is suitable for any denomination, in my opinion. I cherish this book and have given copies as gifts to my cousin who lost her mother and a friend who is experiencing a difficult divorce.

We used this work as a resources in a support for group for separated and divorced adults in our Catholic parish. The blend of poetry, prose and useful spiritual advice was exceptionally helpful to our group. Deacon Mark Hobson
Some Closure Sep 5, 2006
Joyce Rupp gives techniques to overcome many of the "goodbyes" a person faces in a life time. I found the chapter on Praying our Goodbyes particularly helpful. It does not take away the loss but helps one deal with it.
Beautiful book Jul 20, 2006
I loved the book, and the prayers in it. It was very gentle and healing, and I will use it many times in the future.
Empowering read Jun 28, 2006
This book gave me the courage to leave a place I had lived and loved for 22 years and move to another state. Her descriptions of the loss I felt are right on. I have gifted this book to numerous friends who are facing loss of many kinds. If you're looking for a comforting book on the spirituality of change, this is it!
