Excellent guide, 24 Oct. 2013
Even though this book was written more than 20 years ago, each of the seven steps mentioned in this book were exactly what I was going through right now. There were so many emotions and processes i was experiencing and that I couldn't put words to, and yet the author described them perfectly. My husband also passed away in the same way that the author's husband passed away and was much younger too so I felt that this was the perfect book for me at this time. I had many many 'aha' moments, saying to myself this is exactly what I am going through now. Through this book, the author gave me hope that I would come out of this process alive and well, and she has included many stories from other people that have experienced losses that I didn't feel so quite alone. This is an excellent guide for anyone who is going through the process of mourning/ grieving a spouse.
