Subtitle of this book is Meditations for Grieving Widows. I have not lost my husband, but I did give this to my mom to read when my dad passed away. She said that it told a lot of truths and validated a lot of her feelings.
Each page contains a quote and then a short essay. At the end is an affirmation of feeling. An example of one quote i, "For the first time in thirty0nine years, they have different addresses. His is: Riverside Cemetary, Plot 12, Row E." The affirmation is, "We may live apart, but you will always have a place in my heart."
I've read it, too, and the information in it is valuable for anyone who has experienced a loss.
