On Your Own: A Widow's Passage to Emotional and Financial Well-Being
Alexandra Armstrong, Mary R. Donahue
Dearborn Financial Publishing, 1996 - Business & Economics - 377 pages
Alexandra Armstrong, CFP, and Mary R. Donahue, PhD, have both experienced the traumas of widowhood - one losing a spouse, suddenly with no warning, and the other losing a father, following a lingering illness. In On Your Own, they provide sensitive yet practical advice to help you cope with the financial and emotional turmoil you are experiencing. On Your Own provides you with invaluable information that will enable you to address any emotional or financial issues of widowhood, including determining whether your grief is "normal"; understanding how lifetime experiences impact your financial and emotional responses to widowhood; creating a meaningful budget for the present and developing a plan to meet your future financial needs; and dealing with lawyers, banks, accountants, and other advisers as a widow.
