Reviews - What do customers think about A Solitary Sorrow?
On track and very helpful Jun 21, 2007
Reisser does a great job of exposing and describing the silent epidemic of pain and suffering that many post abortive women are experiencing. I found this book to be right on track with describing the feelings I have experienced 10 years or more after my abortion. It does a very good job of recognizing the importance of one's spiritual perspective and family situation in the healing process. From my perspective, it is not overly "Christian" in perspective.
A book for Christians only Jun 16, 2003
This book definitely takes a religious perspective on the issue of abortion. As someone who is not a Christian, I found much of the advice to go contrary to my own religious beliefs about life and conception. If you are a Christian person who has been through an abortion, this book would probably be helpful to you as you recover. For me, many of the suggestions about thoughts and activities for healing just did not fit the situation. The book, like many others on this subject, also does not do much for women like me who needed a therapeutic abortion due to medical reasons. I am still waiting for someone to write a book that deals with the pain of having to abort a wanted pregnancy.
A MUST FOR POST-ABORTIVE WOMEN Sep 13, 2002
This book is a god-send to the post abortive woman. I have suffered from this "solitary sorrow" for 17 years. This book, along with the study, Forgiven and Set Free, has changed my life.
I was one of the ones who believed I could never be healed from this terrible "choice". Please buy this book if you have had an abortion - your life will change dramatically.
Superb Resource Jun 28, 2000
In this book, Teri Reisser, a marriage and family therapist and a pioneer in the field of abortion aftermath and healing, has presented an outline of the aftermath of abortion and its resolution in a "reader-friendly", gentle fashion. This is an excellent book for someone trying to make sense of an abortion experience. Working in the field of abortion healing myself, I know that many women have found this book most helpful to them.
