I read as many books as I could find when my husband died suddenly this year. This was the most helpful one I found. I have since bought at least three more for friends in the same circumstances. I reccommend it highly.

It is so easy to lose sight of daily life and things that need to be done. Uppermost in our minds is the loss of our loved one. How can the rest of the world keep going to work, shopping for groceries, worship, keep up with sporting activities and volunteer work? My world has changed. It is empty. Healing a Spouse's Grieving Heart helps to keep us focused during our mourning so we can get back the life our spouse would want us to enjoy living.

This is very helpful at at very difficult time. Allows you to acknowledge the hurtful or less than helpful things that people say and take them with a grain of salt.

Gives some great ideas for you to pick an choose from and do what you need at that time or what is helpful to you. I heard the author speak a few years before the loss of my wife to cancer at 54. When we had our loss I remember what he shared and wanted to get more details plus catch things I might have missed now that I was in the middle of morning and greaving.
Introduction is very good and sets the stage for where he comes from. I am and educator and like his material very much. Got related books of his for my adult children that were college graduates and early in their career when their mother passed away. I read and utilized the one for spouse personally.

The advice in this book is valuable and useful. The difficulty is that it is printed in a small, gray font. Good advice; poor printing.

This makes about the twelfth copy of this book that I've purchased. It was a great resource for me and now I share it with friends that have lost spouses and also bought a few for our church bereavement group. Each "chapter" is one page and pinpoints all the things a grieving spouse might encounter.

I purchased this book for a co-worker when her 54-yr. old husband died suddenly. They were inseparable and did everything together in their 30-yr. marriage. She has thanked me profusely for the wonderful gift, saying it is really helping her through her grief. The chapters are short (which is good when you are having a hard time focusing on anything); and the advice is modern, up-to-date, practical and "non-preachy." Because of the wonderful response I received from giving this book, others have asked where they could get this book to give to someone they know who would benefit from it. I recommend it to everyone!

How could I possibly have missed this?? The book just arrived today, so I started skimming it and browsing the introduction.... and immediately I think that it's kind of odd that he is talking so much about the loss of his father in a book for widows and widowers. And I can tell that a lot of this is going to be aimed at the senior widow/er. Fine, I'm used to my demographic getting overlooked. I start figuring that maybe he's a few decades older than me. And he starts talking about widowhood from an oddly limited perspective (what about unmarried widows? widows who had divorced and were in their 2nd or 3rd marriage? gay widows???) and I start to squirm.

So I start looking for more information about the guy writing the book. AND HE'S NOT A WIDOWER!! He's an "author, educator, and grief counselor" who lost his father. Are you kidding me?? Why would I want an outsider's perspective when I already get that all day long? Yes, I browsed this book before I bought it, but apparently I didn't look deeply enough. At this point, I'm giving it two stars because I'm (STILL) sincerely hoping that I will find something in it useful. After all, he is a "grief counselor." I still feel like I've been swindled.
