Product Description

From Booklist

This latest entry in the Chicken Soup series is targeted at the newly brokenhearted: those who've recently experienced the death of a beloved friend or family member and are still reeling from the experience. It's a collection of stories by authors who have lost loved ones, and in their stories, they detail the particular death, the aftermath, and how they dealt with their overwhelming grief and found the courage to live again. This collection is very sad, bordering on the maudlin, and while it's not clear whether the stories will make anyone feel better (they may actually cause mild depression), some readers may find comfort here. Divided into chapters with titles such as "Final Gifts," "The Power of Support," and "Living Again," the stories emphasize the universality and commonness of death, which may be something of a panacea. In any case, this series is hugely popular, and librarians should stock up. Kathleen Hughes

I was given this one as a gift after having lost my husband. I didn't pick it up right away. When I was ready, I dug into the book and was heart-warmed by the stories inside. Very uplifting.
I am in my second career (8 years) as a Family Services Director in a cemetery/funeral home. I have started sharing this book to those that I see that need the encouragement.

I recently lost my beloved father following a lengthy illness and numerous hospitalizations. His death, though expected, was very devastating---and has bruised my heart. I bought "Chicken Soup for the Grieving Soul" last week, and read several of the stories daily. Each and every one has given my heart a boost!! Reading the sincere stories of others' losses and how each is dealing with their own grief is helping me through my own grieving process. A wonderful source of inspiration and healing!!

Once again Canfield and Hansen have produced a thought provoking book. Death and loss is never an easy subject and anyone experiencing loss will see that they are not alone in their feelings.
I would also recommend the following items for those wishing to find comfort and a way to work through their grief.
1. Healing Stories of Grief and Faith, From Denial and Despair to Comfort and Peace
2. Write From Your Heart, A Healing Grief Journal
3. And for children a video, After the Tears, A Gentle Guide to Help Children Understand Death.

I have been a big fan of the Chicken Soup for the Soul books since the first book in the series was published. Overall I have found the books to be both uplifting and helpful, and now that the books are published for specific audiences, I have found the books to be jammed packed with great stories. Many of the books do lift the human spirit and are quite useful to people in ministry, teachers, and other people in human service professions. I believe that this volume will be especially helpful to people who have to work with people who have experienced a loss or friends who are trying to comfort someone in pain. Judging from another reviewer, people experiencing loss have also found comfort with the stories in the book.
I have not read the stories in this book while grieving the loss of a loved one. I have read the stories at moments when I have had to help grieving people. I have found that the stories give me a perspective that helps me reach out to those who are experiencing a loss. This is not a book that contains the "right thing to say." More often than not, presence speaks louder than words, and the stories can help us be present to people who are experiencing a loss.
