This book should prove especially good for the man or woman who has been widowed at a fairly young age. I lost my wife to cancer when we were both 47. EVERY loss is deep and injurious, but different kinds of losses affect you in different ways. I've also lost a parent, and bringing a parent does seem to bring you one step closer to your own mortality. Thankfully, I haven't lost a child, but have been close to people who have, and losing one's child is a monstrous violation of the natural order.

But losing a spouse is unique, too. This is a brave book because it addresses some issues our culture doesn't seem to want to acknowledge. When I lost my wife, I lost my best friend, my life partner, my dearest companion -- but also my lover. All of it felt horribly unfair, and the darkness it left in my life made me feel very close to insane for awhile. The author respects all aspects of loss, and offers hope. Grief never ends, really, or at least it hasn't ended for me. They say time heals, but in truth, time merely passes -- we must do the healing ourselves.

Format: Paperback
At the age of 51 and having endured the intense sorrow and confusion of widowhood after her husband unexpectedly died of a heart attack, Rachel Hartzler brings a very special expertise in "Grief And Sexuality: Life After losing A Spouse", a book designed to help others deal with the universal questions about grief, spirituality, and the loss of a romantic and intimate relationship. "Grief And Sexuality" is especially recommended reading for both men and woman having to reconstruct their lives after the loss of a loved one, as well as an important and insightful addition to the supplemental reading list of Christian pastors, priests, ministers, counselors, and mentors working with widowed parishioners, their friends and families.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The title "Grief and Sexuality" leads one to believe that this book will address both topics equally. However, the analysis of grief is predominantly theoretical and scholarly with a definate religious bent. Sexuality is briefly discussed primarily in terms of remarriage or the alternative of celibacy. No real guidance here for the recently widowed.
