My mother and I were each given our own copy of this book when my father died very suddenly ten years ago. Since then, I've sent it many people as a comfort in their bereavement.
Its selection of poems, writing and thoughts on grief were invaluable to me. So much so that, for a period of time, I carried it with me everywhere with pictures of my dad kept in the pages of the book, marking poems I particularly liked.
It may not be to everyone's taste at hard times in their lives, but this book helped me.

One of my close friends gave me this book after my husband died a few years ago. I read it on a daily basis in the first couple of months and found it a great source of comfort. It has a range of poems, etc which cover all aspects of bereavement. There is one piece I particularly like which describes how the dead person has 'gone into the next room, waiting for you there'. This stayed in my mind and helped me to see death as part of an ongoing cycle, not a finality. In my experience, having a chance to read about bereavement by a range of authors, helped me to deal with some of the feelings that maybe didn't come out talking to friends or family.
I have logged onto amazon today to get a copy of it for a close friend following her mother's recent death. I highly recommend it.

I was sent this book twenty-four years ago when I was widowed aged 29, I kept it by my bed and in the long and anguished nights that followed I drew huge comfort from it. I dipped into it when I couldn't sleep and I read it when I felt that no one else could possibly know what I was going through. It is published by the excellent CRUSE the charity for bereavement. I have given many copies of it to people in need and they have all I think, found something that resonates in it for them personally. Grief is a very bleak landscape and this book helps and guides one through it.

My husband died in 2004 after 43 years of marriage an experience of many and therefore accepted as being expected, and until it happens to oneself one is unaware of the impact on one's life.
A friend gave me a copy of All in the End is Harvest, an anthology of words by an eclectic group of contributors.
It helped with learning about the way grief affects one and always seemed to have just the right thing to say at the time one needed help. At the worst times it always seemed to provide consolation.
I now give it to friends who have lost loved ones, rather than flowers and it has helped many through the sad times. I calculated that in 8 years I have sent over 50. Many keep it by their beds and dip into it for the comfort it gives.
The nice thing is that there comes a time when one has worked through the worst part of the loss and then one can move on and pass the book on to someone else. But I have a copy beside me still as it is so full of wisdom as one never really recovers totally from beavement.
Thank goodness no one has updated it. I get most of my copies via Amazon and the dates of publication vary from the 80s onwards. The cover has been changed a little, but I hope that that will be as far as it goes. The content is timeless and I hope it is never changed. I could not recommend this book more.

I lost my wonderful mum in May, and have been deeply affected by feelings of guilt, regret and sadness at the loss of not only a mum, but my best friend. This wonderful book will bring comfort and in time, I'm sure a lessening of the anguish and utter desolation we feel. I have cried when reading it, but find a consolation in the beautiful words of some of the writings.
When you are grieving it's not easy to put in to words how you feel (even if you wanted to).

I would recommend this book to anyone recently or not so recently bereaved. It is a wonderful companion.

Format: Paperback
A bereavement councillor gave this book to be when I was deep in grief, and it made all the difference to me. When you are grieving it is difficult for people to help you, try though they may; and of course they do try, and that is wonderful. It does help, but you need something more, because all to often the pain is so deep that no relative or friend can really touch it.
This is where this wonderful book comes in. If I say, and it is true, that when I was given it I suddenly felt less alone, it may seem bizarre. But that's how it was. The book addresses you. Many of its extracts come from those who have grieved themselves, and this actually does reach the pain, because while you are reading it it is as though you are in the presence of a fellow sufferer, who understands what you are going through, and can help. And what this tells you is that, painful though grieving is, terrible as the pangs of grief are, that all in a way is well. Grief needs to be expressed and lived through.
Various ideas are put forward as to why the pain is so great, and I found the best of these to be that grief is the price we pay for loving. Grief is a very intense and painful experience, but if we loved the person who has died, then in a way we owe them the tears we shed. Beside such thoughts you will find the promise of recovery. It seems impossible to the person deep in grief that he or she will ever recover, but the promise of this book is that, though it may take a while, the sufferer will eventually return to his usual self. It actually says that grief can, eventually, bring out the best in you. Many, having gone through it and been shattered by it, wish to help others so stricken, and accordingly join bereavement care organisations. I did.
