Book Description

Widowhood Is Not Funny is a Guidebook for the new widow. The new life of a widow is a damn hard journey and the best travel guide is another widow.
This Guidebook is written by someone who has been there and done that, someone who has been through the Five Stages of Grief and knows how difficult life is after losing one’s husband. The new widow needs help from someone who knows how to get to acceptance.
A New Widow especially needs to know she’s not alone, that there is someone who understands, someone who knows how afraid she is. She needs someone to hold her hand and lead her through the obstacle course she will encounter on this journey. Friends and relatives mean well, but they don’t really understand what she needs or how to help her.
This Guidebook is intended to help the new widow find her new purpose and show her that there is still joy to be found, that happiness again is possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book for the recently widowed September 12, 2011
By Richard
Format:Kindle Edition
Alanna Parke Kvale's book, Widowhood Is Not Funny, is a book that I believe everyone who has ever suffered the loss of a spouse, or who is about to go through this unfortunate time in their lives, needs to have to have in their hands. I believe it is very helpful in getting through those hurting times. My wife passed away on December 2, 2007, and if I had had this book then, I believe things would have been somewhat easier for me. Alanna is a truly great friend and has helped me in my times of struggle after my wife's passing. She has always been willing to listen to me when I would write to her about my feelings, and her words of comfort were from the heart, as she has experienced this same loss in her life. She writes from experience and I highly recommend her book! Purchasing this book will be the best thing you can do for yourself, along with prayer and knowing that God is always there to comfort you.
God bless!
