When Kristin Meekhof lost her husband to cancer, she discovered what all widows learn: the moment you lose your partner, you must make crucial decisions that will impact the rest of your life. But where do you begin? This inspiring book shows grieving widows what to expect and how to deal with the challenges of losing a life partner. From immediate issues like finances, estates and medical bills to long-term hurdles such as single parenthood, being a widow in the workplace and navigating social situations by yourself, this book guides widows through the tumultuous and painful first five years to a more hopeful future.
My husband of 44 years died very unexpectedly a few months ago. Friends shared with me books that brought them comfort - none of them were helpful in the least. My counselor suggested this author - this is the best book I have read. It is practical and accurately describes the range of emotions and challenges a woman alone after many years of marriage faces. I highly recommend this book. I will keep one to give away when the need arises.
