Item description for Finding Your Way After Your Spouse Dies by Marta Felber...
Overview There is nothing you need more than the warm, reassuring voice of one who has traveled this path before . . . and survived after suffering the death of a spouse. In Finding Your Way After Your Spouse Dies, Marta Felber offers just such a voice-caring, hopeful, always pointing ahead to a tomorrow that will be a little easier than today. Having experienced her own spouse's death, Felber is never glib or simplistic. She knows the grief her readers are feeling and she encourages them to give it full expression. At the same time, she offers sound, practical suggestions on how to navigate difficult days. This book shies away from none of the difficult issues of bereavement. Felber gently urges her readers toward careful, honest examination of the issues they face.

Excellent Approach for Grieving Spouse Jan 12, 2007
Helpfully reminds us that our grieving process is as unique as we are unique as people. Provides a reassurange hat where we are and what we feel in this loss is acceptable and will continually change and return to the moment as the time goes on.

Finding Your Way After Your Spouse Dies Sep 7, 2006
Far too religious for me. I do not think this book presents a healthy way to respond to grief.

Excellent writing, very helpful, good suggestions from one who has experienced this loss.

This is a nice little book, consisting of two page reflections, advice, a suggested prayer, and related scripture on a series of topics that very roughly reflects the grieving process. As such, it can be read cover-to-cover, but serves most use as a "daily reflections" or "journal by proxy", and is best when you flick through the pages and read whatever section you happen upon.
My main complaint with "Finding Your Way..." is that it's yet another "grieving grannies" book that is inherently speaking from and to an older woman's perspective, thus leaving something to be desired as a book for under-40 widowers. Just once I'd like to find a book that addresses topics such as "how to regain your sense of manhood after braiding your daughter's hair."
That being said, "Finding Your Way..." is a comforting and encouraging book, and contains helpful advice for anyone who has lost a spouse.
