Quotes & Awards

  • “In this encouraging resource, new widows can find compassionate emotional and practical assistance.”

    Library Journal

  • “The most important quandaries bereavement poses—some with lifelong import—must be faced while widows are still reeling from emotional trauma. Or must they? Meekhof and Windell help vulnerable readers sort what can be put off and what must be done—and where to get help doing either. Had this guide been available back when I was rushing to extricate myself from the financial havoc left by my husband’s death, their financial advice alone would have saved me substantial sums from which my children would have benefited.”

    Kathryn Craft, author of The Far End of Happy

  • “One of the few things we know [with] certainty about life is that, in life, we never know. A Widow’s Guide to Healing is that rare gem, a practical guide that makes the unthinkable bearable, the painful manageable, and the road to healing a little brighter. You will be hard pressed to find a better guide on growth in the aftermath of loss.”

    Lee Daniel Kravetz, author of Supersurvivors: The Surprising Link between Suffering and Success
