I purchased this for a close friend whose husband died recently. She read it immediately and said that it was a great help. It is short, so easy to read amidst the turmoil of early grieving. Good support.
This book has been very helpful to me. It acknowledged all that I was going through, and gave me the affirmation that I needed to know I was okay. I knew God had a plan for me, that when my husband died, God was not shocked and alarmed at what he would do with me now. This book helped me to make a resolve to allow myself to grieve in my way, and in my time..knowing that God would bring me through the other side, and I would experience joy again. I'm still waiting for my morning. But, the affirmation received from this book was what I needed to know that I am not alone. God is with me.
This is an excellent book to read on losing your spouse. It helps you to see that your suffering is something that everyone feels and you do not feel so alone. When you ask why did this happen to me and why now, it gives you examples as to how others have handled these question and makes you look at the death of your spouse and the hurt you feel in a new light. I read this book five years ago when my husband died and passed it on to a good friend a couple of years later and have now purchased another one an gave to my sister when she lost her husband this month. If you have lost your spouse read this book and look to God for healing. It happened to me and it can to you too.
