Yanking Bittersweet: Stories of Widows Coming to Terms with Grief (Paperback)
Even when supported by compassionate relatives and friends, a new widow might feel that no one truly comprehends how profoundly her life has changed and how difficult it is to contemplate the future.
No one except, perhaps, another widow.
Yanking Bittersweet offers a chance to spend some time with 21 women who share their unique stories of bereavement as well as their efforts in finding a new path in life. Widowed readers will see aspects of their own experience reflected in these stories. Moreover, they will find in the stories some seeds of hope that a bright, satisfying future is still possible and probable after the loss of a spouse.
Whether widowed or not, all readers will encounter connections to our common humanity in these compelling accounts of grief, resilience, growth and transformation.
