I read it (and about 20 others) when I became an instant widow. Other 20 became library donations for "How to Be a Good Widow" and concomitant grief. This one I kept, recently gave to another widowed instantly, bought for my Kindle. Short, sweet messages. I had been part of their monthly widow/widower meetings with food (a funded study) and a day-long workshop. My family isn't close, late husband's family doesn't perceive my need to still be in their midst becuz I had moved from area (even left out of one parent's obit, the other's will….petty, but shows what I need, they don't have). Valuable even if you, too, have family afar and only your own chair at the table.

The book presents the reader ways to cope with the grief experienced on birthdays, holidays and anniversaries of the death, weddings, etc. I ordered several of these, over a period of time I have given almost all away to people that were grieving over the loss of a loved one. Each - so far - after reading the book has thanked me and said that it was a help to them.

While this isn't a big book, there is a candle lighting memorial section in the back that is a wonderful way to remember your loved one. You can use the words in the book which are beautiful or make up your own. Somehow this section really touched me. There are other sections in the book that walk you thru addressing your feeling and offer suggestions on grieving and how to grow or deal with it.

This is a must read for anyone who has lost someone and is experiencing their first holidays without a loved one. The book provides many practical ideas for ways to integrate the loss of a special person into the holidays. It also helps explain why you may not want to go out and do the holiday parties circuit after losing a loved one and how to tell people you are not up to it this year. I highly recommend this for all who have lost someone they loved and are looking at the holidays with a heavy heart.

This is a great book for anyone who has recently lost a loved one and dreads getting through the holidays.

I was given this book when my husband died a few years ago and it helped me immensely. I buy them now to give to those who have lost a spouse or other loved one. It is understanding, realistic, and encouraging. Very well written!
This book is a quick read, yet powerful. If you are experiencing grief, purchase this book. Religious or not, you will benefit from it, and find peace and hope and a path toward healing your broken heart.
