I found this beautiful book to be very, very helpful in my own grief journey this year. The author gives excellent background information about what grief is exactly and how it affects us in many different ways, and most importantly she gives us permission to make the journey our own. Also included are many, many good and useful suggestions for caring for ourselves during a grief journey, and these include activities for our physical, mental,emotional, and spiritual health. I found the Resources section at the back of the book useful as well as the thorough index. Thanks to NetGalley, the author and publisher for an advanced reading copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
