HopeAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful ResourcesOctober 11, 2013HopeAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Although it seems like this isn't a particularly well known book when I ask others if they have read it, I think it is one of the best books addressing grief available.
Someone had recommended it to me and I happened to end up reading it not long before someone close to me died. Although my education is in the counseling field, and I have read numerous books on grief, as well as walked through the loss of many others close to me prior, I was grateful to have just read Sittser's book.
I was grateful I had read this prior to that particular death, though, as I think reading the extent of the loss that Sittser walked through might have been difficult when in the middle of processing your own grief.
However it is a book to return to over and over, whether you've lost someone or not.
What I really liked, though, is that Sittser's book really contains valuable principles that transfer to loss in general, not just death - meaning chronic/severe illness, etc. as well.
It is truly an exceptional gem and worth reading and returning to over and over.
