Exceptionally accurate

I lost my mom just over 3 months ago and am going through a lot of emotions that feel so foreign. This book helped me connect with those feelings as a normal part off grieving and made me not feel so alone.

POWERFUL. I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!

I’ve read and listened to many books on grief since my mom died, but this one is by far the best. This feels like a loving friend holding my hand, sitting with me through this overwhelming, crushing time that so few really understand. It continues to provide comfort and guidance during my most painful days when I wonder how I will survive this.

I listen to this incredible book over and over and have gifted it to my siblings and several friends. It has been by far the most positive part of my healing process. What a gift!

This excellent book is a blessing.

This amazing book has been like my grief bible. I keep it on my bedside and know it’s always there for me with answers, validation and emotional support. The comforting audiobook is a godsend on my long drives, like a dear friend guiding me through this.

Through the author’s beautiful heart and words, I have been given hope during this very dark and confusing time. Truly an exceptional book and the author a beacon of light to those like me in grief.
