But hopefully you also find it very helpful. I started reading just weeks after my son lost his battle with cancer. It's now been 5 months, and I just finished reading. So much of what I struggled with are expressed by these moms, which is sad but comforting. They provided real life applications to tough situations that I was better prepared for because of their words (How to handle holidays, for example!)
This book allowed me to know that the way I was feeling was ok and that there is no timetable for grief. I kept thinking that after 6 months I should feel better, but the women in this book made me realize that the grief does not go away; you just learn to manage it in whatever way you can.
Anyone who has lost a child should read this book; no matter how you are grieving, you will find that one of these nine women have probably felt the same things and it really is comforting to know that you are not the only one and that you are not going just a little crazy.
