I good book by a wonderful lady. It is rich with scripture and encouragement, which I can appreciate. However, two sections of the book could be less than encouraging for certain individuals. One chapter includes suggestions for eating healthy foods, some of which may not be practical for those living on a fixed income. Also, the chapter about getting a dog could be painful for those with living situations that do not permit pets. Overall a lovely book, but I would carefully consider my audience before giving it as a gift.
I read this book after my husband died. I felt like it was written specifically for me. Joyce touched my heart with this book and since then I have purchased several copies and have given them to women who have lost their husbands. I like to keep a couple copies on hand in case of unexpected loss. Thank you for carrying it in your line of materials.
This is an excellent book for any grieving person, especially a widow. The 'fog' she talks about is exactly what I have experienced; her recommendations about scriptures and the comfort and peace they bring are so true.
This is the first book by Joyce Rogers that I've read and somehow expected it to be like her late husband's preaching. I was expecting more of a "widow's guide to starting over" than what she wrote. She includes a lot of Scripture which is wonderful but I can read Scripture without buying her book. The content, other than the Scriptures. was disappointing and really nothing new from what I've already read in other places. The cover and binding are very attractive and inspiring - not so much the content.
