There is no sure route through grieving. Jerusha McCormack provides instead a series of signposts by which we may find our own path to a new life. "We are all amateurs at grief," she writes, "it comes to us all; we must all go through it. To treat grief as a problem to be fixed, or (worse still) to medicalize it, is to rob us of the extraordinary privilege of encountering this experience on our terms: for each of us has our own way of grieving, and each of us has something special to learn from the process."

There is no one right way to grieve but this book provides many useful suggestions. The author speaks from her mind as well as her heart, exploring feelings many of the recently bereaved will recognize. This book can't take the place of a loving friend or an empathetic counselor but it does offer significant consolation.
