It has some very good observations on grief which are accurate and helpful to identify with. It also gives many useful points to consider during the confusion of grieving. However I had to read it with a pencil in hand underlining the important stuff and crossing out all the irrelevant content. By this I mean stuff about God and Angels and also she has a really horribly irritating habit of starting a paragraph with an interesting observation and you want her to go on but she then goes into a story about someone - and you just don't want to know. It happens every couple of pages. Without these irritating stories and just solid content, the book would be half as long. They feel like filler and are pretty pointless because no two griefs are the same. In the midst of your own grief, you don't want to hear someone elses stories.
Both authors are experts in this area having worked for many many years with people dealing with bereavement. They also share their own history and journey with grief, which happens to be helpfu not indulgent.
They describe helpfully the stages of grief, which will be immensely reassuring to anyone who thinks they are going mad whilst trying to cope with their loss. They convey strongly that when a loved one dies you don't get over the loss, it is always there, but you learn to live with the loss, but it takes a long time and there isn't a neat 'end point' when grief is finished.
Written with great compassion, heart and their skill and experience is in every sentence. It feels authentic and that you are in safe hands as the authors share their wisdom about death and loss.
After I had read it, it gave me the confidence to buy this book for someone whose parent died more than a year ago, although I did so with some trepidation in case it was ill received. I couldn't have been more wrong and they were so touched that I understood that they were still grieving for their Mum and they 'hadn't got over it' just because it had stopped being mentioned. What a gift of a book that encouraged my gesture and has openend my eyes and heart on this topic. I strongly recommend this book.
I would definately recommend it to anyone trying to come to terms with the death of a loved one.
