5.0 out of 5 stars Tiny shafts of light in the darkness... Aug. 13 2003
"Healing After Loss" was given to me after the sudden and unexpected death of our 14 year old son in March. The loss is so terrible and unimagined. We have struggled to go through each day without our only child, our wonderful son.
The friend who gave me the book had lost both her parents and her maternal grandparents within a 10 year span. She actually brought over her own dog-eared copy saying that I needed it now and she didn't have time to get a new one. Since then I have ordered my own as well as copies for my parents, Aunts and Uncles and friends.
This book has incredibly insight, hope, understanding and some new ideas delivered in small doses (the tiny shafts of light in the darkness). Since concentration levels are so affected during grieving, the one page entries are easy to read or skip, if you need a one that will more fit your moment. With grief, at least for me, it seems like my mood and outlook can change so much within a couple days - this book fills many needs.
Although my husband hasn't read it like I have, I will now and again give him a page to read that is particularly insightful for us at that moment and it can, however briefly, help him as well.
At first I read what ever I turned to when I opened it, then I read all the dates that were significant to me, now I am reading it like a daily diary. Last week I was talking to my friend, she has a copy, and although she listened she didn't feel she had an answer for me. Later, she called back giving me a page in the book to read - it was so completely accurate for that moment and feeling - I felt a bit of strength after reading the page.
I cannot say enough about the author and her grace, strength and ability to comfort.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Best Oct. 6 2005
By A Customer
After the loss of my son recently I have searched for something to help me deal with the overwhelming grief. This book, 'Healing After Loss' has helped me in so many ways along with another book (E-Book) I read recently, Song Of Cy: Understanding Grief by Katlyn Stewart (Whiskey Creek Press). With the two books I am able to understand the devestating emotions and find a new path to create in this world. I thank both of these insightful authors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Someone who understands Aug. 20 2011
By Vina
I was so overwhelmed by grief after my daughter died, and I desperately searched for comfort. Previous reviews led me to buy this book. I knew right away that the author had also lost a daughter. Now, five years later, I still turn to this book. Ms. Hickman understands like only another grieving mother can. I buy several of these books at a time so that I always have one to give.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE book to give to others experiencing grief! June 1 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the book I buy and give to family and friends experiencing loss. I've done this several times now and the book has been so appreciated just as I appreciated the book when given to me by a long-time friend on the death of my mother. It really "saved" me - reading the daily messages, calming and grounding. I used it through a difficult and painful separation, too. The book is still valuable and inspiring after all these years.

I have given this book to many friends and clients who have suffered grief in the past few years. Every one of them has said how sensitive and encouraging the book is. It is designed to be read through the year (a meditation for each day), and it can be picked up and started any time of the year. This book was written by someone who has suffered great loss and can share in the pain and be a companion on the way.
