“This book is a true gem and a must read for anyone who has experienced the grief of a close personal loss. The author opens her heart, mind, and, most importantly, her soul to examine the devastation of her husband’s death and her ultimate triumph … This book is a true inspiration. She is painfully honest, open, and extremely uplifting in her writing.”

Grief is not something you understand from a distance. STUNNED By Grief is for anyone struggling with death — or any of life’s tragic losses. This book is a no-nonsense look at the essentials — what you really need to know at first about grief. You’ll learn what is happening and what to do. Gain a realistic perspective. Discover ‘remapping’ — a fresh, personal approach that delivers a snapshot of the grieving process, to help you understand up front what is needed. Relate to the experiences of others who have been there already. Find tools, tips, and strategies to help you remap and reconnect your life after loss.
