Baker Getting to the Other Side of Grief: Overcoming the Loss of a Spouse

Losing a spouse is something no married person wants to imagine. Psychologist Susan Zonnebelt-Smeenge and pastor/professor Robert De Vries provide much needed support from a unique perspective - empathy. They each suffered the loss of their spouse at a relatively young age. Throughout Getting to the Other Side of Grief, the authors share their stories as living proof that if worked through properly, grief will lead the way to a fresh new life.

To be fair, I have not read this entire book - could not bring myself to. I chose this book as a resource to use in supporting my mom while we grieve the sudden loss of my dad at the age of 64. I hoped for empathetic, wise and helpful strategies for dealing with the loss of a beloved spouse. Instead, this book feels quite technical - almost as though the authors are teaching other grief counselors instead of readers in the midst of painful grief and sorrow. I would only recommend this book to grieving widows/widowers after the first anniversary of their loss.

Getting to the Other Side of Grief was a book I will never regret purchasing. It speaks of exactly the place a surviving spouse will find him/herself. I have given away many books to new widows/widowers because it answers so many questions we have; emotions felt; explains new kind of normal life experienced. I recommend this book for consideration as a gift or for your personal use.
