14 of 14 people found the following review helpful By R. Quinn on 4 Dec. 2008
Format: Paperback
Bought this book after returning to Spain after the death of my father in Ireland 18 Nov 2008. Still grateful that I had been over to see him and was with him when he died. As is usually the case for me I looked for and bought a few books to help me deal with what I was going through.

I need only have bought one.

Nearly didn't buy this one as it was written by a man and I thought that he wouldn't really understand the bond between a daughter and her beloved father but I was wrong. Harold Ivan Smith has captured in his book the emotions of any child who has lost their Daddy.

The book contains extracts from other books on Fathers and was contributed to by different people from all walks of life who are united simply by losing their Dad.

It is a must for everybody whether your father is alive or dead. To quote Jimmy Roosevelt, son of President Franklin Roosevelt, on discovering his father had died, "I did not realize until then how much I had loved him."

I did realise how much I loved my Daddy but I just didn't realise how much it was going to hurt and how much I was going to and continue to miss him.

I love you Daddy. XXX

Format: Paperback
This book is excellent, it can be read cover to cover, or by going straight to the appropriate section. It helped me to acknowlege my own feelings and thoughts on my fathers death but also made me realise that I am not the only one who feels like this and am not destined for the funny farm! Although there are bible references / prayers / hymns at the end of each chapter, along with many quotes I began to find a comfort in these too. I would give this book to anybody I know who has lost their father. It is not too long, not too short, and best of all not patronising and condascending. It is real.

The parts where Harold is talking about his own experience is really helpful. However, 2/3 of the book is about quotes and religion.

Good book, but not really what I was looking for... 11 July 2000
By Megan Osman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am 27 years old and my father passed away in March at the age of 52. He died very unexpectedly. I really enjoyed the style of this book, but the personal stories seemed a little out of date for a younger person and also for a daughter. I would suggest this for a male in his middle life, whose father died as an older man. That seems to be the main focus of this book, as that was the author's experience.

A must read for anyone who lost their father. 16 Nov. 2000
By John J. Mazzucchi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book helped me in the most difficult time of my life. When my father passed away I was looking for a lot of answers to many questions and this book helped me in that regard. I have bought this book seven times because I keep giving it out when someone close to me loses their father. Everyone seems to get a lot out of it. For those who have just lost their father my heart goes out to you because you now know the feelings that come with such a loss and I hope reading this book helps. God Bless

A GREAT COMFORT 14 Mar. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I recently lost my father to lung cancer on March 5, 2000. He was only 57. This book helped me to feel closer to him even though I believe he is in heaven and no longer here on earth. It includes examples of other people who have lost their fathers and how they dealt with their losses. The author also includes numerous bible verses and quotes to comfort the reader. A very easy read that I recommend for quiet time and reflection.

Finding Peace 6 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I lost my father very suddenly two months ago. For a seemingly healthy man to go like that, I was devastated.As a nurse it was even harder to accept than it was as a daughter. My husband brought this book to me about a week after his death,along with another equally helpful book. For some reason I found myself coming back to this one to read over and over. I sent copies to both of my siblings. To say that this book brought me peace would be the best way to describe my feeling whenever I started to read it. Thank you for putting my feelings into words to help me cope as well as validate the emotional rollercoaster that I am still riding.

Help for the Hurting 1 Feb. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My father died in 1992, I had many thoughts and feeling that I still had not dealt with when I found Harold Ivan Smith's book on grief. As I read the book it comforted me and let me know that I was not alone in what I was feeling, that many others had felt the same way and that I would be able to get through and survive. No matter how or when your father died or what kind of relationship you had with him, in my opinion this book can help you. I am buying several copies of it now, to give to a friend, who's husband has just died and she doesn't know how to help her children. This book will help her.
