A very deep book that makes you think about grief and what happenes. It's Lewis's process and notes of what he went through after the death of his wife. Fascinating. Goes away from the commercial Grief Counselor and Shrink approach to a real human experience and what it does and how to get "through" it.

In April 1956, C. S. Lewis, a confirmed bachelor, married Joy Davidman, an American poet with two small children. After four brief, intensely happy years, Lewis found himself alone again, and inconsolable. To defend himself against the loss of belief in God, Lewis wrote this journal, an eloquent statement of rediscovered faith. In it he freely confesses his doubts, his rage, and his awareness of human frailty. In it he finds again the way back to life.

My husband read this after his mother passed away and said it really explains your griefing process and what his dad is going through.

This is a very short, but well worth the reading, especially for anyone experiencing grief and doubt.

My husband passed away 5 months ago and I have been reading many books to face this process of grief. For me, I believe that this book is by far the best to work through this difficult time.
