This book looks at different ways of going through a loss of any kind. The author draws examples from her experience as a psychotherapist and counsellor and offers the readers the chance to learn about different ways of grieving, as well as make them see that they are not alone in their grief. The language is free of jargon and the book manages to tackle this difficult subject with the dignity it deserves. The author also offers practical information on the "symptoms" of people faced with loss, her view on the different cycles of grief as well as advice to people close to a grieving person.

Reviews and Endorsements

'In a culture where we have forgotten that grief is a natural and normal response to loss, Penny Rawson re-introduces the concept that sanity and bereavement are not mutually exclusive. Her common sense and compassion will restore hope to many who sorely need it.'
- Sister Frances Dominica, Founder of Helen House Children’s Hospice and Douglas House, a Respice for Young Adults
