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.

After the sudden loss of my husband, I recently purchased this book to help me get through the grief process. I found this book to be extremely helpful and insightful in identifying the myriad of feelings I am experiencing. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has suffered the loss of their spouse.

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.

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.

My husband recently passed away at age 69, having had Alzheimers for the last 14 years. We had had a very close and strong marriage and while I knew his passing was inevitable and, towards the end, imminent, I thought I was prepared for it. However, when the time came I realised just how hard it really was, and still is. I initially borrowed this book from our local library, and could immediately see how helpful it would be, so ordered one of my own. Can thoroughly recommend this book for any spouse who has suffered a bereavement and is struggling to cope.
