    I read this immensely helpful book during this time of loss. I needed something to read that helped me spiritually and is helping me in my transition of grief and grief recovery. Rabbi Lamm helps mourners to get through our grief and grow in strength through it. He has superb insights on the days of shiva, the year of kaddish, and the loving kindness of others that reveals the true purpose of Jewish mourning. His themes are optimistic. Despair “teaches us about our inner strength”; encourages us to ask “le’mah” (for what) rather than “lamah” (why) and ends from Psalms, “They that sow in tears shall reap with songs of joy.”This book is a wise and helpful guide which has cross-over appeal, not just Jewish readers and is highly recommended reading during a time of loss.
