Publisher's Description

"Widow" is one title women do not want. But according to the Surgeon General’s office, 800,000 people become widows or widowers yearly in the United States alone. And when this happens, every aspect of life changes—like it or not, ready or not.

These changes add to the emotional roller coaster that most women experience after losing their husband. Miriam Neff understands the ride. As she struggled to understand and accept her new role after her husband’s death, she recognized the need for women to hear from others about their experiences and what helped them transition to this new stage of life.

From One Widow to Another offers practical advice for those facing the loss of a spouse. Drawing from her own loss, Neff walks with the reader through practical issues to a sense of encouragement.

    This book is an excellent resource for the widow in any stages of her grief. Well written and easy practical ways to help cope with a very difficult place the widow is in. You can't change the situation but you can move forward from your great loss with the help from God and the help of those who have been through the loss of their loved one. This book is inspirational and a must to read if you are a widow. I would encourage you to pick up the book and read it.

    This is an amazing book. It was given to me from a friend when my husband died in 2010. I was so very blessed and encouraged by it. As I looked around I became vividly aware of others hurting just like me, and this hurt is so indescribably painful. After speaking to my pastor, he gave me the go-ahead for widow/er ministry. I use this book as a free handout to any widow I meet. This has become an unbelievable ministry and while bitter/sweet (bitter for this group is growing in leaps and bounds...and that means so many more are hurting as only another widow/er can understand...sweet for as we gather I am watching support and friendships develop among those attending.) it is so encouraging to see those hurting and yet navigating this path come up beside new widow/ers and let them lean on those of us further down the road. I would encourage any widow/er to get into a Christian support group where there are like minded friends to lift you up. I am so blessed for the realization that God is truly the healing balm and He uses US to apply that balm to others' hurting hearts. This in itself, is healing to all. I might add that most all the concepts also apply to the widower.

    I strongly recommend this book for it covers all areas that you will face as you trod this very difficult and painful path. God bless you as you trod this very rough road! Please know He holds you so tenderly in His hands!

    My husband has been dead 7 months now. I have been reading many books on being a widow. All are different and offer diverse perspectives. I found this book very helpful. Mrs. Neff has already gone down the road of "widowhood" and does an excellent job of lighting the way for others. She very clearly and thoroughly shows you what you might experience, challenges and pitfalls alike. I felt like she was taking me by the hand and walking with me.

    Becoming a widow is something you cannot prepare for; there is no learning curve. The moment your spouse dies you are confronted with learning as you go. There is no right way or wrong way to grieve, it is very personal, but we all have common denominators we will face.

    I found being a widow very confusing. There wasn't a file I could neatly tuck it into and predict or control what I faced, emotionally or physically. Mrs. Neff's book brought me not only reassurance but also encouragement in these dark moments. She helped me realize I wasn't as alone as I felt. Others had gone through this and survived; she herself had made it.

    She showed me there were choices I could make in this new life I had not chosen. One was realizing who in my life I could turn to and depends on to give me guidance and support. She gave me sound advice about finances, that of course drastically change when I was suddenly alone. She covered so many things that I would not have thought of in this fog I am walking through.

    Unlike many books this one dared to approach some positive changes that would come into my life. Yes, positive! I know that is hard to even fathom when you are in such pain. She does not ignore the agony and heartache you are experiencing, as she does talk about it, neither is she negative and morose. Her approach is positive and upbeat without being offensive to a freshly broken heart.

    I found help in glimpsing into the future even though I am not ready to venture there now. Mrs. Neff reminds us the importance of reaching out to others and comforting them as we have been comforted as the Bible speaks of in, 2 Corinthians 1:4, "Who comforted us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God."

    One of the things I appreciated most of all and made the book so relevant to me was the strong Biblical thread that ran through it. As a Christian that is the only way I am able to approach anything is through God's Word. My book has many dog eared pages for me to refer back to the parts that were especially helpful. I highly recommend this to any woman who has lost her spouse. Thank you, Mrs. Neff, for this work of the heart.

    I received this book free from the publisher Moody Publishers. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

    Best thing since my husband left in Feb. Have felt so alone, even with other widows. This book, finally someone said things that helped in the healing of open wounds.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Miriam Neff
Submitted: April 30, 2009

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I have a new life I did not choose. But it is unfolding as exciting, rewarding, full of surprises and adventures. I can relate to people in change, crisis, and transitions, whether financial, divorce, death of someone they care about intensely, or any move. I understand. We can strengthen each other!

    What was your motivation behind this project?  When I became a widow, I could not find any resource to meet my needs and desires. Every thing changed in my life. Many didn't understand. Still I desired to grow in a positive way. This book is a resource that addresses so much of what we need in times of change.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  Definitely information on everything from money to friendships, emotions like grief, depression, and anger, to courage and new faith. I trust folks will find new hope and courage rather than being stuck in ordinary and facing backwards. Married friends have told me EVERY woman should read this book.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  Certainly this book has been part of MY healing. I've now traveled to Africa providing sewing machines to widows, thanks to my network of friends, many of whom are new on this journey as well. I feel like a wealthy, blessed woman.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Can someone mentor you by osmosis? Since my husband's departure, I realize his profound impact on me--my desire for excellence, persistence, integrity, and impact. I desire those things. He set a high standard and lived it with gentle, classic grace. "Thanks, Honey. I only remember you on the days I'm breathing."

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I trust this book comforts, informs, and brings you some chuckles. Read on!
