Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0981744362, Paperback)Grief, by its very nature, is overwhelming. And, many people accept that there are established stages of grief: anger, denial, bargaining, and acceptance. Sometimes the grief stricken will attempt to plod through these stages with a sense of determination, hoping for a feeling of control during a time that feels totally out of control. Unfortunately, the stages are not linear, nor are they predictable. Grief cannot be rushed. Grief takes its own leisurely and excruciating time. It cannot be gotten around; it must be gotten through.In this book, award-winning author Spike Gillespie and author Katherine Tanney present a series of essays written by those who have been devastated by grief and have found a way through to the other side. From the loss of a loved one to death, to divorce, job loss, and even unexpected sources of grief, Gillespie and other essayists describe their initial feelings of helplessness, their attempts to push through the stages of grief, and the things that gave them comfort and solace along the way.
