I am on month eight and enjoying every entry - I thought the book would be full of misery and "I miss him so" stuff, but instead it speaks to real issues of anger and going it alone - there are periodic opportunites to write letters to the missing spouse and all types of marriage relation-ships are covered.

This book was incalculably helpful to me as I walked numbly through the first year after my husband's death. I received many books from well-intentioned friends, but couldn't find much enthusiasm for reading much at a sitting. This book is in a "daily meditation" format, presenting one idea per day, on one page. This was not too much for my grief-stunned attention span, and dealt with real issues in direct language. I appreciated it so much. Now, 6 years later, I want to purchase it for a friend, and am shocked and dismayed to find it's out of print! I sincerely hope that whoever is responsible for that will reconsider.... I heartily recommend this book for all widows who want to remember, and to gently help themselves heal.

THIS IS A WONDERFUL BOOK. I TOO, WAS UPSET WHEN I COULD NOT FIND IT WHEN I WANTED IT FOR A GIFT TO A RECENT WIDOW. I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT WAS SO TO THE POINT AND EVERYTHING I WAS FEELING.
PLEASE BRING IT BACK

When my mother was widowed in her 40's, this book was a godsend for her. I in turn purchased it for a friend of mine, recently widowed in her 40's as well. She said it was the best gift she received and it helped her immensely during the grieving process. I now want to purchase it for another widowed friend and am dismayed to hear it is not in print. I am hopeful it will continue to be printed as its format and easy, brief daily insights, make it comfortable and manageable to read one thought a day to get through the initial shock of being alone.

A comforting companion as widows live through the first 365 days following the loss of their spouse. This book reflected the same feelings that I was experiencing. The words supported my thoughts and helped me travel through the valley of loneliness and grief. A gift that should be given to any woman faced with the overwhelming burden of loss.

Living With Loss was given to me after I lost my husband to cancer. I passed it on to another and have since purchased many more to give to others. I read an entry each day and found connections beyond belief. Along with prayers,family, friends, and a wonderful support group, this book was a great savior.

With the loss of my husband at age 44, I was devastated. This book was a gift and I read it everyday. I have never read anything that described my exact feelings as this book did. I vowed to give it to every new widow afterwards that I knew personally. I cannot believe it is out of print. This book need to be on the shelves for all widows..as the previous reviewer wrote, it is just enough daily reading for the troubled, confused mind. I love this book!

This book doesn't provide a meditation for calendar dates. Instead, it has thoughts and affirmations appropriate for each day that has passed since your husband's death. (For example, Month 3 Day 7.) This makes the reflections more relevant to each day.

Also, every week or so, instead of the usual meditation, the author suggests an action to be taken. Not all of the action items have been appropriate for me, but others have really hit the mark and helped me get through a rough spot.

Losing my husband to brain cancer has been the hardest and most painful experience of my life. This small book has helped me navigate the 3 months since his death. I hope it will bring you solace as well.

I am grateful for this book at this time in my life. My husband was 55 years old when he died. We were married for 21 years. This book is from women who have been there! I get the most when I read short readings right now and these words are helping me to cope with this very difficult and strange time in my life. The size makes it easy to carry also. Thank you. KAB

I would recommend this book for any new widow. It was the best book of many I read following the death of my husband. Was disappointed to hear it was out of print but the used book I received was in very good condition. I gave it as a gift to my newly widowed sister-in-law.
