Widowed Without Warning (Inglese) Copertina flessibile – 20 gen 2001
|Nuovo a partire da||Usato da|
Joanne Shortley-Lalonde is now remarried and the proud mother of five children. She has written several articles for newsletters, newspapers and magazines. Her second book will be her depiction of suddenly becoming a step-mother trying to find a politcally correct way to replace that archaic implication that "stepmother" means evil. She still believes in fair tales and happily-ever-after endings.

This book will help any widow with all of their feelings. Knowing we are not alone in the pain and thoughts we endure is a critical part of healing. This book will take you from the moment Joanne found out her husband had been tragically killed in a plane crash to the day she realized she can go on and be happy again. This process is different, yet the same for every widow, especially those who have lost their spouse without warning.
Reading about her feelings and pain from the first night and how she could not cry when she initially found out were so familiar to me. (The tears came quickly as we all know) She then goes on through each emotion she endured for her and her two teenage children.
Until I read Joanne's book, I was not sure I would be okay. Now I know I will and I can be happy again. I also know that I am not crazy for the different emotions I have felt. Like the times I have just wanted to end my life thinking the pain was to great. Joanne shares her every thought without holding back. This is what all widows needed to hear from another widow. I was able to connect with everything she wrote. This book captivated me. I read it in one setting and am getting ready to read it again.
My only regret is that this book was not published earlier. If you have become a "Widow without Warning" or know someone who has, PLEASE take the time to read this book. I would have paid thousands of dollars for this.
This book is wonderfully written, easy to follow, and Joanne Shortley-Lalonde knows how to pull the reader in and keep him/her interested in her story.
This book is a must have for those who have lost a loved one and are looking for validation and some light at the end of the tunnel. It is also a must have for those who take their loved ones for granted.
I read this book cover to cover in one sitting and have recommended it to everyone I know. Wonderful job writing!
This book gave me a sense that it was OK that I miss my husband so much and it also gave me the courage to go on with my own life. Thank you for writing this book. The only fault I found in it was that it didn't exist 3 years ago. I think this would have helped me to see that my life did not end with my husband's
