Should be read by all who have lost someone... Sep 20, 2005
I acquired this book 20 years ago when my husband passed away in a tornado that passed through our town. We had only been married 28 days and I was only 28 years old. I went to my church for guidance and answers and of course found none, but one of the nuns there gave me this book -HOW TO RECOVER FROM GRIEF- it took awhile to pick it up and read it, but when I did I found answers and comforting words. This book helped me tremendously, along with family, friends and my church. As years went by I became stronger and passed it on to a friend of my mothers. I now have a friend who within two years has lost her son and her husband, I intend to buy her this book, hopefully it will help her the way it has helped me. I know grief is individual, but this book puts grief at ease for people. It lets people know that its ok to cry, laugh or what ever it takes to get through this difficult time in ones life. I cant say enough about this book.
Why We Wrote This Book Jan 12, 2001
My wife and I wrote this book for three reasons: (1) To provide you with information about the process of grief, knowing that if you understand what's happening you'll be less fearful and better able to work through your grief; (2) To provide you with support as you go through the grief process, assuring you it's OK to grieve, it's OK to take your time (it takes as long as it takes), and assuring you that what you're going through is probably perfectly normal for someone who's grieving; (3) To provide a catalyst for your growth, because although it's horribly painful, you can grow through this process and, even if you don't believe it now, you do have a future.
This isn't pretentious. It's easy to read and a convenient book to mark up. You don't have to digest it all in one gulp! At first, when your grief is raw, you may only be able to deal with the quotes in the margins, but the time will come, down the road, when you are ready to come back and read more.
We're grateful that this book has helped many people through their grief, and we hope it can help you. Grief is hard, painful work! Your whole world has turned upside down. Nothing makes sense any more. You feel alone and confused. You think your feelings and emotions are out of control. You wonder at times if you are losing your mind. This book is for you!
