Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heike is my neighbour and last year we both suffered losses. This book is both insightful and heartfelt. It helped me with the loss of my Mom and all of the associated feelings I went through. I'm still experiencing the loss and with Christmas coming the pain is sharp as my Mom passed December 28, 2016 one day after her birthday. Heike lost the love of her life and her experience as detailed in this book expresses the difficulty and personal impact of loss. I have great respect and caring for her as a person and a writer. It takes great courage to share your pain in order to help others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So comforting I bought this book about a month ago and loved the way the writer described the stages of grief and how she dealt with loss. Although I have not lost a spouse, I have lost my parents, been divorced, had my children leave home - all these situations left me feeling lost and out of place. I experienced to a lesser degree what Heike writes about so touchingly. I loved her humour, honesty and naked truth. Reading her book felt like having an honest chat with a close friend over a coffee. Highly recommend this to anyone going through loss and pain. You are not alone!
