Widowed : A Guide for Living After Loss
by Joyce Brothers




Overview -
In this book written shortly after her own husband's death, Dr. Joyce Brothers shares her grieving process and life after loss in this supportive guide that is "generously coated with genuine compassion" (The Pittsburgh Press).

When her husband of more than 30 years passed away, Dr. Brothers found herself emotionally lost and alone, at sea in an ocean of grief that at times threatened to drown her. Widowed is the story of how she dealt with her despair, how she overcame the loneliness, and gradually, was able to put her life back together.

More than just a book on coping with loss, Widowed is a truly touching story of one woman's struggle with pain and anguish. Dr. Brothers recounts confronting the grief and loneliness and loss head-on, refusing to surrender to self-pity. She avoids hollow and cliched phrases of inspiration, instead dealing with her feelings directly. The book is filled with stories that every woman and man who has lived through the death of a spouse will immediately recognize as real and honest.

The many readers who trusted Dr. Joyce Brothers for decades, who turned to her books and columns for advice, this is the book you can turn to for support, strength, and, most importantly, a glimpse of hope.
