Grief Works - Julie Samuel

Julia Samuel is a counsellor who writes about some of the types of clients she has dealt with who come to see her about the death of a loved one.  She tells us there stories, and some of the things that they did to deal with the death of a partner/parent/child.  Interesting too were those people who seeked out her services as they were preparing for their own death.

It can be tricky for a lot of people to deal with as each death affects us differently, and everybody has their own way of processing that pain, and you can see that her job is to help guide people into moving on with their lives while acknowledging the loss.

While interesting - I felt a bit detached from this book. 3/5

I wish that book had got a higher grade. Sounds interesting. We don't realise when we are young if we live long enough we loose all those we love.i suppose that is a good thing or life would be very grim sooner than necessary.

If you were detached from the book, I wonder how good the author is at her job...
