Ginsburg, Genevieve Davis
In this remarkably useful guide, widow, author, and therapist Genevieve Davis Ginsburg offers fellow widows-as well as their family and friends-sage advice for coping with the loss of a husband. From learning to travel and eat alone to creating new routines to surviving the holidays and anniversaries that reopen emotional wounds, Widow to Widow walks readers through the challenges of widowhood and encourages them on their path to building a new life.
“Ms. Ginsburg has written the most useful, practical and compassionate guide to surviving widowhood. This is must reading not only for widows, but also for their family and friends.”
–Harold Bloomfield, M.D., coauthor of How to Survive the Loss of A Love
“A wise, practical and eminently useful guide for a woman struggling to rebuild her life after the death of her husband. Highly recommended.”
–Nathaniel Branden, PhD., author of Honoring the Self
I received the book before due date and I found this book to be very helpful in dealing with grief.
Being a new Widow, I would recommend it to any Widow or Widower.

I lost my husband at age 46 and felt so lost and so overwhelmed at what I needed to do. This book not only helped to explain some of the feelings and things I had already gone through, but it also prepared me for things that were still to come. Widow to widow lists many tips and explanations on things you will go through that most people don’t even think about…like removing your wedding rings permanently or cleaning out the closets. This book doesn’t just take you through the grieving process but continues on to give you the hope and confidence you need to move on in your life and make it become whatever you want it to be. I was so encouraged by this book that I not only recommend it, but I have found that it is one of the best gifts I can give to any of my friends or family that suffer the loss of their loved one.
If I had to recommend one book to a woman after losing her spouse to death, this would be it. It tackles questions about when to take off your wedding ring, what to do about selling the home you shared, to relocate or not, etc. It tackles many of the real issues that come up as well as perfectly explain the emotions a woman feels.
