This book (similarly to other books of Elisabeth) has a crystal clear structure, she highly knows the real nature of the grief and grieving. She exactly knows that every person has - and has to experience - an own, unique grief, there are no two alike. Therefore there is no universal recipe to help us. Just unique love and sympathy, to every unique persons. And this is also highly true: the process is infinite, never in our life could find any "final" relief without pain. Our pain is as infinite as our love of Him and as our loss of Him. But we used to live further accepting this recognition, appreciating our privileged years with Him - and our privileged years nowadays with each other: with my dearest lifemate, dear father of our beloved son, and with my dearest mother. Every minutes living together is a unique precious gift. This book - as the other ones of EKR - teaches us to survive, to love our life AND our death together - they are two "parts" of the same sphere.
Love for Elisabeth to respect every persons' own beliefs. She never wants to "evangelize". She really respects all individualities, she exactly knows that all of us live and think differently, so there is no "one right way" to us. She can though help us with her eternal truths.
After reading this book I'm able to embrace our hardest grief with the other ones in my life, because they are also my parts, as our common joys, happy hours. Our life is so full with sunshine AND clouds AND rainfalls AND devastating storms. This is the fullness of our life-death cycle. "Birth is not a beginning and death is not an ending. They are merely points on a continuum".
This book brought much comfort to my friend.
