5.0 out of 5 stars This is an amazing book for all!
Reviewed in the United States on June 8, 2022
This book touched some of the deepest parts of my soul. The author penned the book from her heart to my heart, and the heart of all who will read it. It engaged me from the very beginning, where the author begins with her personal grief journey. It informed me of more effective ways of being a support to others who are grieving, as well as, being supportive to myself as I continue to move forward through the various facets of my grief. Ms. Burton’s insights from her experiences, and that of others, brought me to tears in some areas and laughter in others…all of which I could relate to at some point in my own life. The timing of this book is impeccable. I reccomend this book to anyone who has a heart.

I have friends who have lost loved ones and I haven’t been able to relate to what they’re feeling because I haven’t lost a close family member or friend. Gwen’s descriptions of her grief process showed me what my friends might be going through. I thought her advice for what friends can do to support those who are grieving was clear, concise, and valuable. This book is a helpful resource for both those who are grieving and those who are connected to them.
