I was looking for a good book about greiving the loss of a loved one for a non-christian friend who lost her husband in the war.
I wanted to read the book before giving it to her and I was glad I did.
The biggest reason I did not like the book was because it hardly dealt with having a relationship with Christ. Why does God allow us to suffer? The story was a sad one but as I felt like the author never really showed very well how God helped her through it, rather how she made it through on her own because of her strong will. Some parts of the book just seem self-indulgent and even silly; at its worst the book reads like an eggheaded parody of theology.
I will not be recommending this to anyone I know who is grieving and seeking counsel and comfort.
