Sorryyy
My 21 year old brother was viciously attacked and beaten to death by a group of random teenage guys. They did this for "fun". They're the kids that prey on the homeless people or in my brother's case, he was walking down the street to his car at night. The worst part is that they only wanted to beat on him for kicks and "didn't mean" to kill him. They're claiming it was an accident and they didn't mean to have him sustain severe brain injuries. This book described everything I was feeling. I joined therapy groups, but no one seemed to understand. Most of the people I met lost their loved ones of a prolonged illness, an accident, or old age. I felt alone and that no one understood my situation. My brother was a murder victim. He was literally here one day and gone the next. The book made it easier to know that there are unfortunately many people out there who feel the same way I do. It would have been easier to accept if there was a reason for his death. This book explained everything I was feeling. It really hit home with me. I highly recommend this book for those who have lost a loved one so abruptly!! This book has kept me sane for the most part.

My 20 year old granddaughter was killed in a hit and run accident as she was crossing an intersection on foot. The victim's services agency of the police department gave a copy of this book to my daughter who recommended it to me. I ordered it and found it to be straightforward, easily understood and profoundly helpful. It is informative and comforting in that it has statements from others who have confronted a similar tragedy. The book is written with compassion and sensitivity without being syrupy or maudlin.

I read this book a few weeks after a very special person to me was murdered in a premeditated and horrific manner.

I am really glad this book exists, because where else do you start when something like this happens? The author's heart is in the right place, her words are sound, and her assurances of all the many different kinds of normal were helpful. I also appreciated that, although I don't fit neatly into any chapter here (arranged by relation: parents, children, siblings, friends, etc.) I could piece together aspects that fit my situation and find some sense of belonging in my grief.

I don't fault the author for not being able to make me feel better. In a way, she did make me feel better, less alone, but nobody can fix this for me. In other ways, the book temporarily made me feel worse. It forced me to revisit and examine the toughest feelings. The days I read this book were days I had to call in and stay home from work. That's not the author's fault either. It just is what it is. But be aware of that. Make sure you have the privacy, time, and support you need to sit and read this.

I rated three stars instead of four because of all the parts of the book that really didn't fit my situation. I recommend separating this out into two books: one for people whose loved ones died in accidents, and another for the people whose loved ones were murdered. I appreciate that there are similarities here, but I just don't think it's the same, and I think that it would be easier to address the more specific pain more efficiently for each very worthy group if the cases were separated.

One example where I felt my needs were poorly addressed was on the topic of forgiveness. A lot of time is given to addressing the complicated forgiveness of someone who acted with gross negligence and accidentally killed your loved one. Forgiveness is addressed much more briefly (granted, with one very good example) for first-degree murder -- but I think this is the case where forgiveness is the most difficult and controversial issue. I would have liked a whole chapter on how families of murder victims deal with the issue of anger and forgiveness -- does it change with time? Do they forgive, or do they just say, "to hell with it!"? I am in no way ready to forgive right now, but I am exploring the boundaries of my anger, and there are people I will need to forgive even if I never forgive the murderer himself. (For instance, his family.)

That said, the author has my gratitude for her work here. I am glad that I have this book, and should anyone I know ever need it (god forbid), I will certainly pass it along.

My heart goes out to everyone else reading this review. I'm so sorry you're here. Please consider a professional grief counselor, support group, or clergy person for help in addition to this book. It's a good self-work tool, but it is not a complete therapy or support network. (I don't mean that as a criticism!)

Someone that you love has been killed in an accident or by a violent act. There were no time for goodbyes; only a deafening silence that shatters a life into pieces. Family and friends rally by your side; but the real grieving can only be done by the person left behind. My son was killed in a horrible accident at a friend's house fourteen years ago, and I still remember this powerful and healing book. It helped me find my way back from the crushing pain, sorrow and guilt. From the moment you open its pages you know that you will be reading something expressly written for those dear souls who have suffered a shocking and tragic loss. From the first chapter, entitled "Your Grief Is Unique" you begin to realize that there are others who understand profoundly what you are going through. The author's words are simple and straightforward chapter after chapter. Many have found comfort, direction, and the strength to go on after reading this book.

This book was very beneficial and helpful with the information provided in dealing specifically with a death that was not natural. Our son was killed by a drunk driver on 11/28/10. Although there are a few support books that have helped, what I always felt was missing was the additional things we have to face with the criminal justice system, police, defense attorney, and anger caused by dealing with all of this. The book touches on those areas and offers guidance. I bought copies for several family members that are going through all of this with my husband, daughter, and I. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that has lost a loved one to a tragic death, or knows of someone that has.

Besides helping to deal with the grief,crushing sadness,and the anger, this book also talks about concrete things that can be done after ones loss. He talks about the the criminal justice system and financial issues. He covers loss of children,spouses, friends and parents. What to expect on holidays and a nice chapter on spirituality.

This is a straight forward guide to understanding the grief process after sudden, tragic loss. It has sections for spouses, parents and siblings and helps you understand what you need to do to get to the acceptance stage. No fluffy stuff, no "he's in a better place" pablum. Just the facts.
