Grief and Bereavement
When There Are No Words: Finding Your Way to Cope With Loss and Grief
by Charlie Walton
Review... "I read it immediately and contacted him by e-mail to
let him know that his book was one of the most comforting books I
had read. I am in the counseling field and have had opportunities to
study death and counsel others, but I was not prepared for the
impact that losing my son had on our family and many around us.
Charlie has written to me with the same kind of encouragement that
he offers in his book. He is real, practical, and also has published
in large enough print that grieving people like me don't have to
strain to focus."

Conquering the Mysteries and Lies of Grief
by Sherry Russell
Customer Review... "Ms. Russell's
book reorders our perceptions of how totally grief effects us. I
have read bunches of self help and inspirational books. Her book is
one I can say will help many people no matter what the type of loss
may be. I like how she blends the thorny path of grief with the hope
in our human nature."

by Deborah Morris
Slowly and eloquently, you are lead by the hand to the many
treasures at the bottom of the well of grief. Along the way, you
will be challenged to embrace all loss -- to refuse the impulse to
avoid it or expect it to go away after a preordained period of time.
You will also be urged to stop grading and comparing your losses
with those of others and instead to embrace them fully. In the
process, you will find that loss happens "for" you, not "to" you.
In the Midst of Winter: Selections from the Literature of Mourning
by Mary Jane Moffat
Review... "Wide-ranging, well-chosen short works (mostly poems,
some chapters and essays) on death and grieving. I particularly
liked how it was divided into "seasons" of grieving, so I could pick
a section depending on how I was feeling in my bereavement that
particular day (e.g., "Winter" is divided into Shock, Idealization
and Anger, Sing Sorrow, Consolations, etc; "Summer/Fall" have
Memory, Dreaming the Dead, Grief's Wisdom, etc). There are
individual sections on Mourning the Loss of a Child and The Grief of

using this book. If these comments could be summarized, they might
be voiced: "This is the most personal, practical and comforting
grief book we have ever seen."

easy read that let's you know that it does really hurt this bad, but
you will get through it."

Grieving the Loss of a Loved One
Customer Review... "What I appreciate most about this book is
the author's honesty and candid writing. Because she too has
suffered, she can relate to the reader's feelings of denial, grief
and loss. Each entry is comforting, thought provoking, and will
allow you to go at your own pace. I read some things more than once
and skipped around, too, to whatever was appropriate for how I felt
at the time. A must have if you have lost a loved one, or know
someone who is dealing with this situation. It's just like talking
to a good friend."
