Marianna has written a wonderful book for those dealing with bereavement and grief - either as someone who helps others, or as someone experiencing grief themselves. She is simple, clear and gets to the essence of what a person needs to make it through. As someone who is helping others in grief, or doesn't know what to do when a tragedy strikes, Marianna gives you a road map to follow. For someone who is experiencing grief, you will feel understood and will have a way to communicate your needs to those around you - even if it's just passing the book to them and asking them to read it. I highly recommend Marianna's book.
