Publisher's Summary

Like Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross' groundbreaking On Death and Dying, Susan Anderson's book clearly defines the five phases of a different kind of grieving - grieving over a lost relationship. An experienced professional who has specialized in helping people with loss, heartbreak, and abandonment for more than two decades, Anderson gives this subject the serious attention it deserves. The Journey from Abandonment to Healing is designed to help all victims of emotional breakups - whether they are suffering from a recent loss or a lingering wound from the past; whether they are caught up in patterns that sabotage their own relationships or they are in a relationship where they no longer feel loved. From the first stunning blow to starting over, this book provides a complete program for abandonment recovery.

Amazing Book

What made the experience of listening to The Journey from Abandonment to Healing the most enjoyable?

It's been five years since my 20-year marriage was destroyed one morning. I have searched for books, gone to counseling but nothing made sense until I started reading this book.

What did you like best about this story?

I wondered how my partner was able to move on so quickly while I was still in love and incapable of moving on. This book described my situation to a "T" and was the first book that made sense to me. It helped me to get on the road to recovery. It is a must read if you are grieving over a relationship and can't seem to move on.

What did you learn from The Journey from Abandonment to Healing that you would use in your daily life?

I cannot look to anybody or anything else for my happiness except inside myself.

Any additional comments?

I feel deep gratitude to the author for writing this book.

finally! A book for our particular type of grief

Should be a mandatory reading for all mental health professionals. one size grief doesn't fit all.

Helpful and Useful

I think this book aptly summarises and explains abandonment and there are lots of good examples in it. I particularly agreed with the explanation linking current experiences to past losses. It gives positive hopeful expectation to the reader that they can recover.
