Where You Go, I Shall is a book that was born of experience and need. The authors, two of whom are widows and the third an Episcopal priest, were participants in a monthly support group for widows and discovered that many of the Bible's remarkable women-Mary, Ruth, Naomi, Abigail, Anna, Tamar, Judith, and some who are unnamed-are widows. In this book, they tell and reflect upon the biblical stories, offering background for greater understanding, and the two authors who are themselves widows also reflect upon aspects of their own widowhood that relate to the biblical story. The result is a book that will provide understanding and comfort not only for widows but for all who love, care for, and minister to individuals who have been widowed.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In this remarkably candid book, `real' widows write about real issues facing widows today. For those of us called to `witness' widowhoods, in all their variety and complexity, Where You Go, I Shall offers an invitation to care beyond the `how are you doing?' cliches. This is the most helpful book I have read on the subject. Jeanne Person's insights into scriptural narratives challenged what I thought I knew about Naomi, Anna, Ruth, and Tamar. This book will make a difference in the spiritual paths of individuals who are experiencing widowhood as well as those who may face it in the future. -- Harold Ivan Smith, author Grievers of Ask and Grieving the Death of a Mother
These gentle remembrances provide a guide to gleaning the ripe fields of love and loss, bereavement and quiet resilience. Mid-read I put down the book to go outside to find my husband and hold him tightly to myself. Lovely and honest. -- Suzanne Guthrie, author of Grace's Window and Praying the Hours
