The author deals with the big issues, such as being alone on holidays and in general, social life, and memories. She also deals with the nitty-gritty, little issues, such as cooking for one, physical appearance, the question of a job, and cleaning out the closet. The appendices are rich with samples of how to make the best use of the tips suggested in the book.
Guidelines are provided for each new phase, making Widow: A Survival Guide for the First Year a practical self-help book that any widow can use for re-creating her life. Examples include nurturing yourself, creating a plan, making lists, crying and valuing grief, prayer and meditation, taking care of one’s health and exercising, getting past the first holiday and the first birthday, journal writing, dating, handling money, and many, many more survival tips. It seems like she has thought of any difficulty that a new widow may ever encounter.
