I bought this book shortly after my sister died, a year-and-a-half ago. It was excellent! You can tell that Nancy (and her husband, Bill) were truly inspired by God to write this book. This is not the first time I have traveled down the path of grief, but as I turned each page in this book, I was able to take steps toward healing. I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone. It is an excellent first book to read after losing a loved one. I have bought or loaned this book to everyone I know that has lost someone, since then.
