The inspiring and powerful book about navigating loss from acclaimed grief coach and New York Times bestselling author Hope Edelman, featuring an exclusive new introduction

'Hope Edelman remains unmatched in perfectly weaving touching personal anecdotes with illuminating scientific data, to remind us we are not alone' Rachel Reichblum, That Good Grief
_________

Grief is a path we can all expect to walk one day, when we lose someone we love, and life suddenly looks different.

In The Aftergrief, Hope Edelman helps us to understand that loss isn't something to get over, get past, or move beyond. Drawing on her own experiences of early bereavement, as well as interviews with dozens of people who have lost someone dear, The Aftergrief guides us through:

· The story of grief
· Getting it together
· New and old grief
· Finding self-expression
· Reauthoring your story of loss
· Finding continuity

Offering advice for processing loss, regaining balance in its wake and even finding new purpose, Edelman reminds us that our sorrow can ebb and flow, recede and return, and this doesn't mean that we're 'doing it wrong.'

Above all, The Aftergrief helps us to see that while grieving may be a lifelong process, it needn't be a lifelong struggle.
