"I have experienced profound loss and Joann's words are a balm. It's like sitting down with a dear girlfriend over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. Her discussion of grief, from her own personal experience, is priceless advice ("Your grief is separate from guilt, and is beautiful." and "...a widow experiencing grief is not a pathology."). This book not only help widows process their grief and other emotions, it provides a hopeful path forward that honors the whole of who we are as human beings, messy emotions and all. If you are a widow, let Joann show you the way!"
~Karen C.L. Anderson, "The Peaceful Daughter's Guide to Separating From a Difficult Mother"
