5.0 out of 5 stars People die, it sucks, this book is a useful tool for anyone who has experienced loss
Reviewed in the United States on June 12, 2018
You know how sometimes your friends say things like “I wrote this book, you should check it out” – and you think “oh, crap, now I have to buy and read that book” – well I’m so glad that I did and all I have to say is “Where was this book when my Mom died?”

I was my mother’s primary caregiver in the last year of her life, when she was battling Pancreatic Cancer. When she finally died I was so exhausted I had nothing left and navigated my grief mostly on my own. It’s four years later, and I am so glad I have this book. It is beautifully written. Melanie was a dancer, which translates into her writing – it is a delight to read. I am grateful that she had the courage to share her experience with loss, which resonated so much with my own. She discusses it with raw vulnerability that feels authentic and sincere. And Melanie did not add any clichés or B.S. which I sincerely appreciated (I heard enough of those when my Mom died). She completes the book by giving you practices to help with the grieving process that are actually useful.

Some of my favorite quotes:

“I can’t get my life wrong.” P.57

“Spiritual bullshit smells the worst.” P.47

“Grief has no timeline.” P.40

“the universe has a knack for inviting us back to ourselves, no matter how far astray we’ve gone.”

Please consider reading this book if you are a human who has or might someday experience loss – so basically all humans.

My favorite part was the end of the book, which is the picture I included.
