This is probably the best book I've read on loss - and I've read a lot! Not just good for parent-loss, but for all losses.

Highly recommended. I lost my father in childhood and this book has helped me understand that grief doesnt follow a strict course, and we all cope with things in our own way in our own time. This book made me cry, and encouraged greater insight into my present life and how this has been affected by my past. Well worth reading- easy to read and navigate

I got some nice insight from this book but I wish there was more emphasis on adult children. The book's chapters on the first and second year after a parent dies focused way too much on children dealing with the loss of a parent. And while very important I wish there was something in the book description saying that
