Disappointingly off target for me,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Glad No Matter What: Transforming Loss and Change into Gift and Opportunity (Paperback)
I am an admirer of SARK's work, and purchased this on a friend's recommendation after the sudden and traumatic death of my father. Grief is as individual as the relationship lost, I know, but I was disappointed by how little comfort or insight I found from reading this book. I couldn't relate my own devastating loss with SARK's description of the deaths of her long-failing mother and her cat. Perhaps the effervescence (the 'glad no matter what') that I so appreciate in Sark's other work strikes me as inadequate for understanding the transition my family and I are going through. "A Grief Observed","Healing After Loss" and, in spite of the title, "I Wasn't Ready to Say Goodbye" have been much more helpful as I learn how to live with this experience of grief and loss.
