This fascinating, practical book offers insights to help the bereaved accept and accommodate to their losses.
"Love is Stronger than Death" is a coping instrument: a collection of inspirational reflections on navigating through the rough waters which accompany the grieving and mourning process. It contains research, reflections, recommendations, realities and reassurances for those who face the loss of a loved one.
According to the author, society reinforces counterproductive stereotypes and perceptions about grief and adverse reactions towards those who grieve. Dr. Giannet advocates to challenge and change the prevailing wisdom and customary societal responses to death and grief. He emphasizes the importance on relying on love, the relationship, and memories as key ingredients for successful coping. His soothing writing offers the reader comfort, increased self-awareness, and meaning.
His masterfully penned insight takes readers on an engaging, deeply moving exploration of the grief and mourning process. This book is a soulful, eloquent invitation to embrace the unconquerable power of love as the primary vehicle for overcoming the anguish that accompanies our losses.
He expresses this impressively in his preface: " Ultimately, the goal is to develop the ability to live an authentic, fulfilling, functional life, while maintaining the precious bonds and meaning that were shared as a result of loving and being loved by the departed."
Giannet further comments, " As the title indicates, not even the stranglehold of death can disconnect or eradicate the devoted bonds we shared with and memories we formed of the departed. It is this love that will carry us through the most excruciating of life's circumstances, renew and restore us. Love - and our departed loved ones - are with us throughout."
