Losing a spouse is something no married person wants to imagine. Psychologist Susan Zonnebelt-Smeenge and pastor/professor Robert De Vries provide much needed support from a unique perspective - empathy. They each suffered the loss of their spouse at a relatively young age. Throughout Getting to the Other Side of Grief, the authors share their stories as living proof that if worked through properly, grief will lead the way to a fresh new life.

mlbjdAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Good book to help a surviving spouseOctober 24, 2014mlbjdAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I lost my precious husband six months ago. This book helped to give me some perspective on some of the issues I am going through and will go through. One thing I liked about it so much was that it was not a book that told me what to do but gave me insight and viewpoints to think about so I could apply to my situation. I plan on reading the book again in a couple of months to help me out even more.
I have already given this book out to a couple of people who have lost their spouses and received great feedback. I purchased several of these books to keep on hand to give out to other people who have lost their spouses.
I highly recommend this book.
SaraCarmel, INAge: 35-44Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Not What I ExpectedFebruary 23, 2012SaraCarmel, INAge: 35-44Gender: femaleTo be fair, I have not read this entire book - could not bring myself to. I chose this book as a resource to use in supporting my mom while we grieve the sudden loss of my dad at the age of 64. I hoped for empathetic, wise and helpful strategies for dealing with the loss of a beloved spouse. Instead, this book feels quite technical - almost as though the authors are teaching other grief counselors instead of readers in the midst of painful grief and sorrow. I would only recommend this book to grieving widows/widowers after the first anniversary of their loss.

Bonnie Bell5 Stars Out Of 5June 9, 2008Bonnie BellGetting to the Other Side of Grief was a book I will never regret purchasing. It speaks of exactly the place a surviving spouse will find him/herself. I have given away many books to new widows/widowers because it answers so many questions we have; emotions felt; explains new kind of normal life experienced. I recommend this book for consideration as a gift or for your personal use.
