Or the pain may have been so deep we temporarily felt nothing." --Cecil Murphey, New York Times Bestselling author of more than 130 books including 90Minutes in Heaven and Gifted Hands:The Ben Carson Story.
"A look at the reality of grief that is long overdue. I highly recommend "Heartbroken" to anyone experiencing grief or involved with those who are." -Dr.Tony Taylor, Senior Pastor, Hilltop Lakes Chapel

About the Author
Gary Roe is the author of Surviving the Holidays Without You and the co-author (with Cecil Murphey) of Saying Goodbye and Not Quite Healed. With over 300 grief-related articles in print, he is a popular speaker at a wide variety of venues. He currently serves as a writer, speaker, and chaplain with Hospice Brazos Valley in central Texas.
Gary’s story began with a childhood of sexual abuse and numerous other losses. When his life began to unravel as a teen, another family took him in and changed the trajectory of his life.
Eager to help others heal and grow, his heart turned outward. Over the next three decades, he served as a campus minister, a missionary in Japan, a pastor, and a hospice chaplain.
Gary says, “I'm here to help. I still bear the scars of my wounds. I grieve, get anxious, worry, and battle fear regularly. But I'm healing, and I invite you to join me.”

I did not find this book helpful in the slightest. Very short chapters in which someone describes what they're feeling (sad, guilty, angry, lonely, lost, relieved) and then a suggestion to "honor your loved one" and a short Bible verse or inspirational quote.
I was looking for something more concrete to help me through this agony, not a series of platitudes and vague remarks about "it takes the time it takes," "be gentle with yourself," and similar statements. I could have written this book myself after an hour of looking at various blogs about the grief process.
I'm giving it 2 stars because the Kindle formatting was perfect and the writing itself was well done with no errors in grammar that I noticed. I'm sure the book is meant kindly and that the author hopes it will be helpful.
