Reviews - What do customers think about Instantly a Widow?
Not at all helpful for me Jan 14, 2001
Biblical platitudes, clicheed writing --- true, in a trite way, to what grief feels like but would only be helpful to someone devoutly Christian. Not at all helpful.
The book is excellent Oct 13, 1999
My husband died suddenly and I recently purchased "Instantly A Widow." It is excellent. It was good to know that someone else felt the feelings I went through. I thank the author for sharing herself with others.
No other material helped me as much as this book. Oct 13, 1999
My young healthy husband died of a massive heart attack. No other materials helped me the way "Instantly A Widow" did. This book ministered to me in my time of need. I have given away several copies and loaned mine. I highly recommend this book.
I identified exactly with author's feelings. Jun 17, 1998
I enjoyed the book and yet it hurt to read every page. Particularly so since I recetnly have gone through the loss of my husband. She expressed so vividly her feelings and I identified with each one. Her faith is a challenge to me to cast all the hurt, grief, fears and care on God fo He cares for me.
Very helpful, encouraging book Apr 8, 1998
My husband died of a massive heart attack at age 49. Mrs. Sissom's reactions, feeling, emotions and pain mirrored my own. This book should be in every church and public library. I cannot recommend it highly enough. It is a book of hope and encouragement, something I desperately needed. Many thanks to Mrs. Sissom for her courage to write this story.
