Format: Paperback
From the very first sentence, I was awestruck, mesmerized. I could not put this book down. TJ's heartfelt candor brought me on a journey of soulful insight and greater appreciation of what my daughters experienced in the loss of their older sister, Jackie; an event, forever blemishing their cherished sisterhood. Surviving the Death of a Sibling has helped to soothe their wounds, leading them on a path of healing and peace. It is a must read.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Devon W. Hanahan on May 30 2003
Format: Paperback
This book is outstanding in two ways: the first is that it offers concrete, practical advice on surviving the loss of a loved one in such an organized way that I, in the wake of losing my oldest sister, have clung to it as one would to a diet or exercise manual. The author's writing style is warm and personal yet direct and concise. I felt as if I knew her, as if she were counseling me and comforting me personally. The steps she advises in surviving grief are applicable to any loss of a loved one.
But the second stroke of genius in this book is that the author DOES specifically address the loss of an adult sibling. She labels this a "disenfranchised loss", one that is not recognized as a major loss by society and thus makes the griever feel confused or guilty by his or her inability to recover from the sibling's death. She adds the story of her own journey of grief over her brother's death to those of dozens of others who have lost siblings. I felt so comforted knowing that the pain I was in (and still am) is normal and should be recognized as something that will not pass quickly. I found myself saying, "That's just how I feel!" over and over. I am so glad that I bought this book, and I know that I will keep referring to it for a long time. I plan to buy a copy for three of my friends that have lost adult siblings, and I know that it is the greatest gift that I can give them.

Excellent book! I read this book 1.5 months after I lost my brother. It taught me that what I'm going through is completely "normal" and not to feel rushed by other's timetables for grief. Wray describes how adult sibling loss is not recognized by society as a legitimate reason for grieving. Society is more concerned for your parents than they are for you. Wray also talks about the bond between siblings and that it doesn't matter how far apart you live, you will grieve the same, and how society can't understand that. Wray also says that depression is the most painful and long lasting stage for siblings. This book gave me hope that I will get through it (not over it) and that love will always endure death.

Excellent read. One of the very few books relating to adult sibling grief which has been a forgotten among the many works on loss and grief
I highly recommend it.

Thank heavens I found TJ Wray's website and that it brought me to her book.
After the loss of my 29 year old brother to cancer, I did the best I could to "deal with it". I was fortunate to have support, many do not. Unfortunately, when I started to feel more depressed about his death 2 years after, I was concerned that I was slipping into a clinical depression. The more I worried that I was "losing it", the sadder I became.
Ms. Wray's observations about her own loss helped me to realize that my feelings were not unique. I was not going crazy and it allowed me the time to work through them. Grief sometimes comes in waves and this book is like a boat on top of those waves....you can still feel the rocking motion, but you no longer feel like you are drowning.
