I'm sure the book was fine, but I didn't read it. It was a gift for a friend of mine who recently lost her only daughter to cancer. The book was not packaged correctly and was open and the pages were bent. I had to give the book to my friend 'as is' and was disappointed that it arrived in that condition.
Purchased my first copy in 2008. I found it to be very helpful in processing my grief. I've used it in a guided grief group of Christian women. We found it very helpful. I continue to purchase extra copies to give to family and friends following the loss of a loved one. H Norman Wright's publications are very helpful!
While this is a quick read, it is a wonderful Biblical counsel for those experiencing the loss of a loved one. I found it to be a great help in processing the grieving when I lost my wife. I keep copies of this book on hand to pass out to others who have lost a loved one.
We all experience the grief of loosing a loved one and this book helps as one travels through the valley. Easy to understand and a great comfort. You will want to keep it close and reread sections as time goes on.
