Although, I majored in psychology as an undergraduate and completed the Master in Social Work program prior to 2007, nothing really prepared me for this loss. I spent years reading nearly everything I could about grief and loss, but I couldn't find a book which captured narratives from widows. I wanted to learn from them, so I decided about four years ago that I would interview as many widows as possible and put their narratives together, along with practical advice from experts in this book.

The first widow I met was my mother. My father died after a long battle from cancer in 1979 and I was nearly five. I write about this as well in my book. (less)
