On Being a Widow Author:Helen Thames Raley The intimate heartbeats of one widow's life...the painful yet positive "sharing of the inexpressible." A book that extends an open hand of companionship to: —
to all who must endure sorrow and loneliness
to all who must accept and adjust to a suddenly changed life
to all who strive for a sense of meaning and ... more »purpose
to all who "wait for morning, for the triumph of a day without tears."
This honest narrative will encourage other widows to look beyond cliches and platitudes. Mrs. Raley recalls her search for spiritual comfort, how she found the faith and strength to cope. And she talks about practical matters and intimate problems with the sympathy and understanding of a fellow struggler. The result is a book that will make a thoughtful gift for widows -- particularly the recently bereaved -- and for those who would understand their situation.« less
