In this small but powerful book, Wolfelt, a professional grief counselor, offers unexpected insights on how to weather the storm of losing what is precious to us. It is decidedly not what friends typically tell us. Instead of “getting on with our lives”, for example, he suggests we need to stop and mourn; to embrace—not resist—the darkness, and to expect recovery to be a recursive, meandering process that will take its own time. Wolfelt draws on examples from other cultures and past eras to illustrate his points. The greatest paradox of all, perhaps, is that in confronting death as the author suggests we end up living stronger, fuller lives.
