After the loss of a loved one, once the services are over and the relatives and friends have gone home, we are left to enter a strange new land, where someone who has given meaning to our life is gone. Drawing on her own experience as well as that of others, author Martha Whitmore Hickman presents a year's worth of meditations for people dealing with this profound loss, offering solace and illuminating a way forward. From January 1 to December 31, each day's meditation considers a meaningful quotation or passage on grief or suffering, with sources ranging Shakespeare to Emily Dickinson, from the Christian Bible to Hindu proverbs. A thoughtful, sensitive collection, Healing After Loss will comfort and inspire listeners on their journeys through grief toward recovery.

Excellent if you are dealing with a loss...

Martha Whitmore Hickman does an excellent job of encouraging those who have lost a loved one. Her book is poetic and is written with love. I can see that since she lost her teenage daughter and she speaks from personal experience.

She is respectful of the grief process yet she nudges you slowly to enjoying the moment and accept that the situation cannot be changed but your reaction can. She also offers comfort in that one can actually feel the presence of a loved one who has passed.

This is true because I recently lost my father and every now and then I do feel him near or I will dream of him and it seems too real and vivid.

Losing someone can be heart wrenching but Ms. Hickman is an excellent example of balancing the grieving process with hope.

What a fantastic book.

If you could sum up Healing After Loss in three words, what would they be?


What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

Grieving is a process and we are all joined together when we lose a loved one.

Any additional comments?

I want to thank her for helping me each day get through my pain.
