On Our Own: Widowhood for Smarties

This is an anthology of stories and poems by people who have lost a loved one. Since it was released before Bill passed away, I’m not in it, but the author of one of the blogs I follow is. Glenda C. Beall writes and teaches in the North Carolina mountains. Most of the material in this book is by widows like her, but some poems and stories are by men who have lost their wives. Some are poignant, dealing with the subject directly; others cover such topics as dating after the fact. I recommend this book to anyone who has lost a loved one, not just a husband or wife. To learn more about it and read one of the poems, visit Glenda’s Writing Life Stories blog.

  1. Sounds like a good book. People need others who have gone through similar circumstances. I’m still single so I can’t identify as completely with the book as would a widdowed person. Even so, I’m glad there are books like that out there for those who have lost their spouse.
