A lifeline for any woman lost in the turbulent storms of divorce or widowhood, After He's Gone shares the lessons of the authors' own journeys from grief and loneliness to hope and renewal, provides tools needed to create a fulfilling new life, and offers step-by-step survival strategies for every stage of the recovery process. Barbara Tom Jowell, whose divorce was complicated by her husband's bankruptcy, and Donnette Schwisow, who found herself widowed at the age of forty-seven, know first-hand the challenges of being newly single. Jowell and Schwisow provide help on every level and in the most practical ways - by including a checklist of things a widow must take care of, a rundown of the different types of insurance coverage most people need, a sample resume and cover letter for job-hunting, and more. But most important, they urge each woman to draw on her "personal bank account of life experiences, " which has tremendous untapped value. They help her to see the light of happier days at the end of the tunnel of despair and loneliness and inspire her to just keep taking that one small step each day that will lead her there.
