Healing After Loss by Martha Whitmore Hickman (not widow specific, but very good)
The Empty Chair: Handling Grief on Holidays and Special Occasions by Susan J. Zonnebel-Smeenge and Robert C. De Vries
"Healing a Spouse's Grieving Heart - 100 Practical Ideas After Your Husband or Wife Dies" by Alan D. Wolfelt, Ph.D.
This is an easy read for early after your loss when it's hard to concentrate for very long. Really good intro and the chapters are short, with a 'carpe diem' at the end of each chapter. I found this one very helpful.
"The Alchemy of Loss: A Young Widow's Transformation" by Abigail Carter
I haven't finished this yet, but I'm really enjoying it. Abby is a 9/11 widow and I met her here in the Widville chat room. She's also a speaker at Camp Widow.
"Seven Choices: Finding Daylight after Loss Shatters Your World" by Elizabeth Harper Neeld
I haven't finished this one yet either but it is good. It was recommended by the facilitator of the online bereavement group I'm in. She's also a widow and this is her favorite grief-related book.
"Traveling through Grief: Learning to Live Again after the Death of a Loved One" by Robert C. DeVries and Susan J. Zonnebelt-Smeenge
Very helpful for me. Focused on five tasks: accepting the reality of death; embracing the emotions associated with death; storing memories; separating yourself from the deceased; reinvesting fully in your own life.
I know she will be there but I can't tell from the list of workshops currently listed at http://www.campwidow.org/workshops/
Hope when we get to sign up for the workshops, they will list the speakers. I asked Abby if her book would be available at CW and she said she hoped it would be. I decided I wanted to read it before CW, so I added it to my Kindle. I really like her writing, her honesty. And I would guess that you would find even more of a connection with being a young widow with young children. I highly recommend it.
wait, how do you share on a kindle? thats awesome!!! I didnt know you could!!!
thanks Dianne! I'll check those out :)
