Who is the Book For?
I designed the book for anyone whose husband, wife, or romantic partner has died in the last year. It has questions appropriate for a few days after the death up to a year or so later. I imagine more widows than widowers might be interested in the book since I myself am a widow, but I wrote the book in a gender-neutral way applicable to the loss of any romantic partner (even if you weren't married). And unlike many bereavement books, it is not limited to any particular religion, and you can personalize the answers to fit your type and level of spirituality (if any). It is most applicable for people who lose their spouse while they are young or middle-aged, but it is for anyone young at heart who wants to rebuild their life.

* Thank you to the graphic designer, Katie Welch, who designed the interior of the book (we describe it as "finchy"). She worked her magic with nature-oriented illustrations that I purchased from Dreamstime.com and Thinkstockphotos.com by artists Embra and Torky. Designers at CreateSpace designed the cover, using background art from Torky and bird art from Embra. My family and friends helped provide expert advice at all stages.
