From One Widow to Another Jun 27, 2009
As a recent widow, I thought the book was the closest to the reality that I experienced during the grieving period. It was the most realistic of the books I had read regarding this topic. I highly recommend it for widows and those who want to interact more appropriately to be supportive of them.
SUCH helpful and practical advice for those of us on this sad journey... Mar 5, 2009
Having originally found the WidowConnection site founded by this author, I immediately ordered the book when it was published. As God would have it, the book arrived just before a major storm so, with my power out for nearly 48 hrs., I ended up reading it straight thru in two marathon sessions. I was immediately struck by Miriam's warm style and way of connecting, I felt she was writing to me personally. She also has some VERY valuable advice within these pages, including on the practical matters that sometimes become overwhelming to those of us who've lost our spouse. I would HIGHLY recommend this book as a gift to a new widow -- I've already been on this sad journey for over a year and a half, but much of the counsel would have been even more helpful early on. What a blessing to have read these affirming and healing words; I'm going to re-read the book again soon as I think Miriam's wise and kind words will continue to bring insight, the book is multi-layered indeed.
Very well needed for today's widow Jan 28, 2009
I give the topic high rate. This is needed in today's society, because many are becoming widow or widower daily. The strength needed is here and everyone who are a widow or widower need this insight. God is doing great and wonderful things with His widows and widowers. God Bless the writer.
