Overall very helpful

Any additional comments?

Found many parts and suggestions for coping helpful as a young widow. It was emotional yet comforting to listen to another widow's story and discover that emotions while grieving the recent loss of a spouse are similar among fellow widows. However, some parts and suggestions will not be relatable or feasible for widows who must still work for many years to pay off the mortgage and do not have the same time and financial freedom as the seemingly semi-retired, upper middle-class author. Overall, I recommend this book for all widows and also suggest joining a local bereavement support group.
