Book Description

The Healing Power of Love: Transcending the Loss of a Spouse to New Love is a collection of twelve beautifully and honestly told, uplifting and inspirational stories of new, loving relationships following the loss of a spouse or partner. Authors Lintermans and Stolzman recognize the life-affirming, vitally important, next step following mourning the loss of a spouse or partner. The often disquieting yet exhilaratingly overlap of grieving and finding new love can only unfold through a commitment to healthy grieving and the willingness to move forward.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Believe It Or Not" April 20, 2006
By Bernard
I bought Lintermans book merely to validate my own thoughts and principles. Much to my surprise her research, personal interviews and creativity not only validated my feelings about "dating" after my loss but expanded my views on the whole proposition of building a new, and I might add, exciting relationship. So to my friends and family I now say "believe it or not" I have a new and loving person in my life and it's O.K.!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exploring What's Possible October 23, 2007
By Beth
One of the many steps to recovery after the death of a spouse is recognizing some of the positives the future may hold. For some, this may include the possibility of one day forming a new love relationship. This book takes the reader through twelve real-life stories of people who did just that. Each story includes the perspectives of the two partners and that of the authors, and deals with issues of fear, accommodating ongoing love and grief for the deceased spouse, creating a working format for a new relationship, and coming to enjoy a new phase of life. There's no panacea for the pain of losing a spouse, but perhaps the most important message in this book is that, when it becomes possible again, it's wise to live in the present and to be open to new sources of fulfillment.

Co-authored by Gloria Lintermans and Marilyn Stolzman, The Healing Power Of Love: Transcending The Loss Of A Spouse To New Love is a sensitive guide through difficulties often associated with losing one love and eventually gaining another. Deftly compiling twelve inspirational stories about new and loving relationships following the loss of a beloved spouse or partner, The Healing Power Of Love provides readers with the power of transition and a gentle guidance to finding and fully loving another as illustrated by heartwarming intimacy, situational assessment, and life-affirming truths helping to realize our emotional self-fulfillment. The Healing Power Of Love is very strongly recommended for its intimate and exemplary stories illustrating how a new love can heal the painful loss of an old one. Also very highly recommended from Gloria Lintermans and Marilyn Stolzman is The Healing Power Of Grief (1932783-482, $16.00, Champion Press).

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful April 12, 2006
By Joyce

Although I recognize that I'm no where far enough along in grieving my late husband to even think about dating again or forming a new relationship with a man, this fabulous book sure gives me hope for the future. I thought that only youngish widows find love again, but the couples in this treasure of a book range from their late forties to mid-eighties! Bravo to each of them for having the guts to once again embrace life and love.

This book was very insightful in knowing where to go with our relationship and dealing with adult children who feel "it's just too soon." It's amazing the parallels that can be drawn through other's experiences.

More About the Author

20+ million step and blended families exist in the U.S. and 2,100 new ones form every day!

For most couples, trying to build a successful remarriage can mysteriously bring out their deepest personal fears, longings, and hopes. The key to not only survival, but living this journey well, begins with discovering opportunities to heal and to succeed; it is not about blame or badness. With the right preparation and resources, a multi-home step or blended family can be a stable and solid foundation for co-parents and children.

THE SECRETS TO STEPFAMILY SUCCESS offers tools that can significantly lower the alarming rate of step and blended family divorce, helping families evolve into highly nurturing, reliable refuges of warmth, safety, encouragement, strength, caring, and joy. Step and blended families have a unique dynamic with which couples must cope, along with all the other normal challenges of life and marriage. See how these families differ in up to sixty structural and dynamic ways from typical intact biological families--including consisting of two co-parenting homes and ex-spouses―and learn how to successfully recognize and manage these challenges.
