Content descriptions

Formatted Contents Note:
There's a light at the end of the tunnel (and trust me, it's not an oncoming train) -- People say the dumbest things (or: "You did not just say that!") -- Thinking "inside the box" (for a change) -- Your "healing timeline" vs. everyone else's "healing timeline" -- Who is that girl in the mirror? (and how to find you again) -- Fueling and energizing (diet and exercise) -- The "business" of widowhood (or: the "wherefores" and "what nows" of paperwork) -- When both mommy and daddy...are you (or so you think) -- The "firsts"--Part I (on the calendar) -- The "firsts"--Part II (definitely not on the calendar) -- First love (or plugging holes?) -- "Now you'll have closure" (and other myths laid to rest) -- B-U-L-L or Y-E-E-H-A-H (the choice is yours) -- To remarry or not to remarry? (That is indeed the question!) -- Welcome to the rest of your life (and other parting thoughts).
Summary, etc.:
Widowhood is a frightening prospect for any woman, but becoming a widow in one's forties, thirties, or twenties can be terrifying. This book deals sensitively with the many problems and questions facing the young widow: depression and grief, helping children cope, facing in-laws, and returning to work. The authors also address practical concerns including financial considerations and personal issues such as health, self-awareness, diet, and exercise. This reassuring book shows how a life that feels at an end can begin anew.
