This latest entry in the Chicken Soup series is targeted at the newly brokenhearted: those who've recently experienced the death of a beloved friend or family member and are still reeling from the experience. It's a collection of stories by authors who have lost loved ones, and in their stories, they detail the particular death, the aftermath, and how they dealt with their overwhelming grief and found the courage to live again. This collection is very sad, bordering on the maudlin, and while it's not clear whether the stories will make anyone feel better (they may actually cause mild depression), some readers may find comfort here. Divided into chapters with titles such as "Final Gifts," "The Power of Support," and "Living Again," the stories emphasize the universality and commonness of death, which may be something of a panacea. In any case, this series is hugely popular, and librarians should stock up. Kathleen Hughes

Top Customer Reviews
I would also recommend the following items for those wishing to find comfort and a way to work through their grief.
1. Healing Stories of Grief and Faith, From Denial and Despair to Comfort and Peace
2. Write From Your Heart, A Healing Grief Journal
3. And for children a video, After the Tears, A Gentle Guide to Help Children Understand Death.
I have not read the stories in this book while grieving the loss of a loved one. I have read the stories at moments when I have had to help grieving people. I have found that the stories give me a perspective that helps me reach out to those who are experiencing a loss. This is not a book that contains the "right thing to say." More often than not, presence speaks louder than words, and the stories can help us be present to people who are experiencing a loss.
