“These are real people who left behind loved ones who are still reflecting on their losses”

Three words to describe the book: raw, real, and instructive. It is “raw” in the sense that Eileen allows the authors of the letters to speak for themselves. “Real” refers to the nature of the book: these are real people who left behind loved ones who are still reflecting on their losses. I believe that the book is “instructive” in multiple ways. It is instructive to those who will in the future experience similar losses. Simply reading the stories of others and how they processed the events will prepare those who have yet to walk the same path. To those who have already lost loved ones, the book can be an encouragement–they will be reminded that they are not alone in the struggle. Friends, family members, and counselors will gain insight into the inner world of the bereaved, and will thereby be able to support them more effectively.
