The inspiring and powerful book about navigating grief from acclaimed grief coach and New York Times bestselling author Hope Edelman

'Hope Edelman remains unmatched in perfectly weaving touching personal anecdotes with illuminating scientific data, to remind us we are not alone' Rachel Reichblum, That Good Grief
______

Grief is a path we can all expect to walk one day, when we lose someone we love, and life suddenly looks different.

In The Aftergrief, Hope Edelman helps us to understand that loss isn't something to get over, get past, or move beyond. Drawing on her own experiences of early bereavement, as well as interviews with dozens of men and women who have lost someone dear, The Aftergrief guides us through:

· The story of grief
· Getting it together
· New and old grief
· Finding self-expression
· Reauthoring your story of loss
· Finding continuity

Offering advice for processing loss, regaining balance in its wake and even finding new purpose, Edelman reminds us that our sorrow can ebb and flow, recede and return, and this doesn't mean that we're 'doing it wrong'.

Above all, The Aftergrief helps us to see that while grieving may be a lifelong process, it needn't be a lifelong struggle.

'An invaluable, outstanding and unique resource laced with empathy, wisdom and constructive ideas for those whose lives have been touched by loss and tragedy' Dr Shelley Gilbert MBE, Founder and President of Grief Encounter and author of Griefbook

'Hope Edelman remains unmatched in perfectly weaving touching personal anecdotes with illuminating scientific data, to remind us we are not alone. The author of the seminal Motherless Daughters continues to be at the forefront of changing how the world understands loss, and The Aftergrief is no exception' Rachel Reichblum of That Good Grief

'In the 1970s the phone rang one Friday afternoon when I was aged thirteen and I was told my mum was dead. If I'd had a road map like this for dealing with grief it would have changed my childhood' Tony Livesey, BBC Radio 5 Live
