Got this for my mom for Christmas. She lost her mom a year ago so I thought this would give her some peace of mind.

Universal Meaning and Connection Feb. 5 2011
By Elynne Chaplik-Aleskow - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am a contributing author to this collection of non-fiction stories about loss, the one universal reality we all experience in our lives. My story "The Red Pen" about my beloved sister Ivy offers readers insight into a rare and unforgettable human being and poses a critical question about the humanity of education. Readers will find in these extraordinary narratives of love, loss and memories a way to cope within the safety of a community of writers who not only understands what the reader feels but has experienced the same emotions. The editors have been meticulous in selecting stories that offer an all encompassing spectrum of experiences and empathy. This is one of the most outstanding books in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series.

Its a Mini Support Group March 5 2011
By Cherise Kachelmuss - Published on
Format: Paperback
Grief for me is not something I handle well as I am sure many people struggle with. Now I don't think all the answers to move on and learn to grieve can be learned from a book, but at least for me I think a book would help. Hearing other people's real stories I think are great to read because they show how they dealt with loss, tragedy, moved on and just survived after a loss. Chicken Soup for the Soul books in general are always so helpful and encouraging and this book is no different. The stories are real and while they are sad they show how people found acceptance and happiness. The book is a mini-support group.

Many, many inspired tales of inspiration for the broken hearted and grieving, told masterfully and poignantly. Be warned...keep that Kleenex box close by! =)

Too much was left out. Hit too close to home., Feb. 14 2012
By lohmalinda - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As one who has been widowed almost twenty years, I was suspicious. I had tried to write a story in the requisite 1200 words and just couldn't do it. So I was anxious to read this book and even pre-ordered it.

This book contained short stories of grieving. However, in each story I read, I KNEW there was more to the story than what was written. Just this once, I truly wish the stories would have been a few words longer. Sometimes you just cannot say everything in a limited number of words.

The grieving process is a long, difficult road. It isn't about healing because you NEVER heal. You learn to live differently and if you are lucky, you evolve to a stronger person. Too many of these stories just didn't make it quite that far.

I would hope that the Chicken Soup Editors re-evaluate the guidelines for their submissions. This book could have been A LOT better.
