"I consider 'Suddenly Single!' a minor miracle," wrote a reviewer. "It's engaging, readable, soulful without being maudlin, & wise without pontificating. It is, astonishingly, a happy book about grief." The book focuses on the trauma of losing a loved one from death, divorce or separation. It examines in easy-reading style what happens in grief & offers practical, down-to-earth ways of coping with loss. Every page is rich with helpful information, all voiced with the reassuring calm of a dear & trusted friend, & laced with bittersweet quotations ("The soul would have no rainbows had the eyes no tears"). Chapters explore The World Turned Upside Down, The Anatomy of Grief, Shock & What to Do about It, Protecting Your Ego, Anger & Guilt, Withdrawal & Healing. The book can be read in a few hours, & it is a comforting companion to return to in times of need. It is neither a course in applied psychology not feel-good fluff. Psychiatrists & family counselors have praised the book generously: "Fills a real need, not only for those who have lost a loved one, but for their friends who often feel helpless in their efforts to comfort & help."
