Waterstones Says

A mother and daughter widowed within forty one days of each other, Anne Mayer Bird and Catherine Mayer share their experience in this beautiful and empowering book that examines grief through the lens of love.

'The most life-affirming book ever written about death.' Sandi Toksvig 'One of the most powerful and helpful books about grief that you will ever read.' Anita Anand

'Grief is more than the price of love. It is love. We must learn not just to live with it, but to make it welcome.'

Catherine Mayer and her mother Anne Mayer Bird were widowed at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. This is their story of supporting each other through whirling grief, 'sadmin' and the darkest of times, as they learn to embrace life again.

Now updated with brand new chapters, Good Grief is an essential companion for loss and a testimony to enduring love. Spiked with wry humour, it is an uplifting, moving and unexpectedly joyous read.

'Smart, upbeat and brimming with fortitude' Observer

'One of the most powerful and helpful books about grief that you will ever read.' Anita Anand

'A perfect book, specific and personal, but spot on about the universal nature of grief and how we grieve. Every page sings and, though often heart-breaking, it's genuinely an utter pleasure to read.' Kate Mosse

'Every life has a start, a middle and an end. Everyone prepares for the first two events, but are we doing what we can to prepare for the end? Catherine and Anne generously share their experience of widowhood knowing that they can help others prepare and cope with grief. An important book on a very important subject.' June Sarpong

'Fantastic book, full of beautiful honesty' Rio Ferdinand

'Smart, upbeat and brimming with fortitude' Observer

'Exceptionally insightful . . . would be very helpful to anyone who has lost someone dear - or who knows someone who has. Which is all of us.' Maggie Alderson for the Lady
