Liked the first part of the book which was most relevant to me I found it helpful in dealing with the loss of someone dear.
Not much new A lot of it were repeats of other books by the same author.
I have purchased this book approx six times for friends, loved ones and people I don t even know It has been shipped around the world and the latest purchase arrived in Paderne, Portugal today Everyone who has read and re read it thanks me over and over again and says it is the best book on Grief they have ever read.
So I am only on Chapter 2 and this book has hit me so many times, I have to write a review right now I have shed tears and had multiple wow moments at only 28 pages in I lost my mom 3 months ago at the age of 60 She was one of my best friends Not only does this book help me understand what I am feeling but also how others are experiencing the same loss, like my Dad I fully intend on sharing this book with all my family Anyone who has suffered a loss please get this book They so delicately explain the steps of grieving and set your soul at ease to go through each step feeling no shame.
