    I won this book through a goodreads giveaway just weeks after having lost my mom, so I read it right away, because that seemed like synchronicity The book began strong, detailing the author s profound grief after the loss of his wife, and how it was different from his grief at the loss of his father He also wrote of how all grief experiences are different, and used a metaphor of leaving a meadow and walking through dark woods of grief, wondering if one would ever find their way clear of it I I won this book through a goodreads giveaway just weeks after having lost my mom, so I read it right away, because that seemed like synchronicity The book began strong, detailing the author s profound grief after the loss of his wife, and how it was different from his grief at the loss of his father He also wrote of how all grief experiences are different, and used a metaphor of leaving a meadow and walking through dark woods of grief, wondering if one would ever find their way clear of it I didn t find that central metaphor very compelling, because I love the woods, but I could see his point and though my experience of grief was different than his, and I don t have the same faith he developed, I can respect his perspective through his journey, even if mine is not the same As a way of seeing that my grief is much like the grief others have experienced, this was valuable, and writing, though conversational, is clear and well done This was worth reading, and I do think it helped me to deal with my own grief

    Grief after one year I won this ebook via goodreads for my honest review I lost my dad to pancreatic cancer about 6 months ago The author lost his wife and was angry, agnostic He found forgiveness and even back to God An interesting perspective on his grief journey I am a Christian and my dad was too, but still liked reading from another persons Grief experience.

    I won this book through a Goodreads giveaway I found it helpful in that reading about his experience was comforting and now when heavy, sad sighs hit me, I don t feel so alone because I know someone would understand it and that you do eventually make it out of the forest.Thank you, Glenn for sharing your experience
