Reviews - What do customers think about Healing for the Heart... A Guide for Survival in the World of the Widow?
Almost more a book for those who love someone who is widowed Feb 22, 2008
This book shares vignettes of several women who have "joined the Widowhood Club" in various ways -- sudden, unexpected deaths -- prolonged deaths -- deaths due to accident -- deaths due to disease. From each woman's story, Nancy draws out some "dos" and "don'ts" for the widow and those who love her. Some things are very basic -- "Remember to drink to stay hydrated.". Others are things people do or say with every good intention, but are, at the least, not helpful, and in many ways hurtful to the grieving widow.
I have not experienced membership in this club, but this book gave me insight into the thoughts and feelings of those who are members. As my title says, I believe the book is as beneficial to those of us who surround a widow in the time of her loss.
