The day I recieved this book was a difficult one, work being exhausting, extending family demanding quality time with my boys, and coming home to medical bills from my wife's last moments on earth. I opened Keogh's book with a hope to relate with his own personal loss and to learn from his experiences. At 2 am the next morning I finished the book with a new look on life and an understanding of what I needed to do to move on and live my life. This book confirmed that I am not ready to date and gave me a guide to getting to the point where I will be.
The next morning I went through my house packing up her clothes, shoes, and purses to take to Goodwill. All her make-up and personal items are next, followed by her pictures on every wall, I will be leaving one picture of her with the boys and I.
This book was perfect for me provoking alot of thought and desire for change. Well done Abel Keogh.
The other school of thought out there (see book PAST: PERFECT! PRESENT: TENSE!: Insights From One Woman's Journey As The Wife Of A Widower) advocates both letting the journey and path of the widower and his timing guide the relationship as he is the one in the greatest state of need at the time, but at the same time making healthy decisions about what's good for her heart as well. It's a far less black and white approach, and therefore more complicated and easier to shoot holes in. It's critics say it's lining the woman up to be a doormat. It's advocates say its the approach of compassion balanced with self-care and self-respect.
My opinion is that if you fail to read both schools of thought, you are doing yourself a disservice.
