Item description for Devotions for the Brokenhearted: Hope for the Grieving by Robin Prince Monroe...
Overview Devotions for the Brokenhearted is the compilation of two previously published devotionals: Loss of a Loved One, and Loss of a Dream. "These books were written shortly after my daughter Anna's death while I was still in intense pain," said Robin. "Most of the books I read on grief are written a number of years after the loss. By then time and God's graciousness has dulled the hurt. I think the reason these devotions touch so many hearts is because people identify with that raw grief and at the same time sense the hope."

I bought this book for a friend who lost her 18 year old daughter. It turns out the author wrote this after losing his daughter! God is awesome! My friend said it really comforted her and helped her with her grieving. Highly recommend for anyone that has lost a loved one.
A healing heart Mar 9, 2007
This book is a very good for the one who is caught in the middle of a loss -one that may last a lifetime. The writings are short, which makes it easier for that person to read when nothing else makes sense. The author shares her heart, which will make it easier for you to share yours.
Hope in Heartache Aug 10, 2006
This devotion deals with the raw pain that comes with loss, be that of a loved one or of a dream that is cherished with all one's heart. The author understands the real heartache that comes with great loss and never criticizes readers for having the full spectrum of emotions. This book helps readers to understand grief and how to acknowledge it, address it, and then begin to move forward. It truly is a blessing.
A Book That Can Heal Peoples Souls Jul 27, 2006
Whether your grief is new and raw or lingering and unresolved, this book can be a powerful tool for healing. If you grieve the loss of a loved one through death or other life-altering circumstances, this devotional offers gentle guidance and companionship. Now that I have read the entire book, and gone through quite a few Kleenex on the way, the writing is beautiful, too. Everything is stated just perfectly, sensibly, sensitively, lovingly. I appreciate the authors openness, honesty and courage in writing it. The book is a beautiful gift that I'm sure will touch peoples lives and heal their souls.
Wonderful insight! Jul 23, 2006
I have purchased several books to give to friends who are either grieving a loved one or any other kind of loss. I found that this is very comforting and encouraging without each devotion being long and overbearing. During the grieving process, I did not feel like reading pages but short encouraging devotions like these are ideal!
