Editorial Reviews

Review

"When a Grandchild Dies gently leads grandparents through the maze of grief by offering stories and quotes from other bereaved grandparents. Through reading When a Grandchild Dies, the reader can better understand and appreciate the normal, natural process of grief. When a Grandchild Dies is divided into three parts: the first discusses what feelings may be experienced at the beginning and how to recognize when grieving becomes unhealthy. Part II assists the grandparents in communication with their bereaved children and other living grandchildren, spouses, in-laws, and friends. Part III offers ways to cope, from relaxation techniques to how to ask for help when help is needed." -- SOURCE_SUBMIT_FORMAT_FULL, October 18, 1999

From the Back Cover

The death of a grandchild is one of life's most heart-wrenching experiences. You not only grieve loss that is "out of the order of things," but you see your own child suffering and feel powerless to help. Friends and family are often focused on the feelings of your bereaved child, so your own grief may be misunderstood and minimized.

After losing two children of her own, Nadine Galinsky discovered that while support was available for bereaved parents, few resources existed for grandparents. When a Grandchild Dies honors the unique grief of grandparents, and includes stories and quotes from those who have experienced such a loss.


More About the Author

Nadine Galinsky Feldman released her debut novel, The Foreign Language of Friends, in October 2011. The Foreign Language of Friends tells the story of four women who meet in a Spanish class and take an instant dislike to each other! A series of adversities will force them to come together. Ultimately, they discover that the real language they're learning is friendship.

The Foreign Language of Friends has been named a finalist in the 2012 Next Generation Indie Book Awards, Chick Lit category. It was also named a Gold Medal Winner, Women's Issues, in the 2011 eLit Book Awards.

As an editor, Nadine produced the Patchwork and Ornament: A Woman's Journey of Life, Love, and Art by Jeanette Feldman. Patchwork provides a glimpse into life in the South Bronx during the Depression. With an immigrant mother and disabled father, Jeanette Feldman discovered the power of art and culture to transcend poverty. Patchwork won the 2010 Indie Excellence Award for Best Memoir.

Her first book, When a Grandchild Dies: What to Do, What to Say, How to Cope, provided grief support to an underserved population. When a Grandchild Dies is out of print but remains available in a Kindle format.

Nadine edited Joy-Full Holistic Remedies by Georgie Holbrook, and her work has also appeared in a college textbook, Teaching Multiwriting: Researching and Composing with Multiple Genres, Media, Disciplines, and Cultures by Robert L. Davis and Mark F. Shadle.

Through her blog, at www.nadinefeldman.com, Nadine informs and inspires women at midlife.

When not working on her many writing projects, Nadine loves to travel, garden, and practice yoga. In addition, she supports numerous charitable causes, including the Houston Food Bank, Puppies Behind Bars, PBS, Kiva.org, and Donorschoose.org. She lives on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State

Although there is no real way to tell someone how to cope when they lose a grandchild, this book is a good start down the path. I can't write too much about this - too painful. But if, God forbid, you find yourself or someone you know in this terrible situation,there is not a lot out there for the pain of grandparents who grieve for their grandchild and for the pain their child is experiencing - this book WILL help. If you lose a grandchild to SIDS, go to [...] for more help. You will find others already on your sad road. To any grandparent who needs this book, my prayers are with you.

My sister lost her 4 month old grandson who was born 3 months premature. He lived for four months, and as any grandmother knows, his death was extremely sad and difficult to cope with. My sister found this book very helpful and allowed her to understand the grieve she was feeling and also allowed her to be more helpful to her daughter.

My grandchild is 8 years old. A sudden tragedy took him from us just 14 days before Christmas! This was some helpful, but didn't support his age nor an accidental incident that took his life.
