This book was an up and down read. A read that was very real, and hard to look at with some of the issues it addresses, but it has its happy moments to. This book is very real. You can see the emotions, feel them, think that it could happen to you. A very good read, a fast read despite the feelings it evokes. Because you want to flip to the next page and see what happens next. I really did over all enjoy this book.I think its probably the best one I have read so far this year. Emotional, Funny, Sad, but most of all a heart warming tale of life. And how to live after loss.

I did not care for this book, I have no experience with death of a husband but I did read it with an open mind and still didn't care for it.

The loss of a loved one, especially a husband, can send you into a tailspin as you reach the different stages of grief. But Lolly Winston puts a sad/humorous touch of reality on the experience that kept me glued to this book until the end. Thanks to her, I could view my own experience and growth into health in a different light. I noticed I nodded my head in agreement so many times and laughed out loud a couple more.
