"This sensitive, yet practical book helps to answer the many agonising questions posed by the bereft and suggests many strategies that may bring comfort. Mary is an American bereavement specialist who has written several books on the many aspects of death and loss. The chapter on children's grief is especially illuminating, as is the section dealing with those agonising anniversaries of Christmas, Birthdays, etc. A useful and thoughtful book with a great deal of genuine understanding of grief and much compassion."
E.B. Daniels, The Compassionate Friends, United Kingdom
"After debunking myths about the grieving process, that it lasts only a few months, Mary M. McCambridge (editor, The National Directory of Bereavement Support Groups and Services) traces the stages of grief (shock, denial, despair, renewal), manifestations (e.g. regrets, depression, anger, workaholism) and effects on marriage, children, friendship and work relationships in "Understanding Your Grieving Heart". Grieving readers will appreciate this warm, wise guide by an experienced bereavement counselor and crime victims' rights advocate."
Publisher's Weekly, Nov 26, 2001
"Understanding Your Grieving Heart After a Loved One's Death is an invaluable guidebook on how to offer comfort to the bereaved and is very highly recommended for personal, professional, the community library and grief counseling collections."
Midwest Book Review, December, 2001
"Very well done-informative, supportive. I highly recommend this book to all survivors and especially to those dedicated professionals in this field."
M. Regina Asaro, MS, RN, Psychiatric Nurse/Consultant, Co-Author, The Military Widow
"When we lose a loved one, we are in a wave of confusion and find it hard to deal with the new me - the person who has been changed unlike ever before because of death. We daily face new emotions, new kinks in our relationships and old myths that need to be discarded. How do we do it all? Mary shows us how to understand what is happening to us in our raw bereavement. This book is a practical guide to living life after the unthinkable happens to us. Mary has the gift to hold our hand and tenderly show us how."
Alice J. Wisler, Editor, Tributes E-Zine Book Review, April, 2002
