"Widow" is one title women do not want. But according to the Surgeon General’s office, 800,000 people become widows or widowers yearly in the United States alone. And when this happens, every aspect of life changes—like it or not, ready or not.
These changes add to the emotional roller coaster that most women experience after losing their husband. Miriam Neff understands the ride. As she struggled to understand and accept her new role after her husband’s death, she recognized the need for women to hear from others about their experiences and what helped them transition to this new stage of life.
From One Widow to Another offers practical advice for those facing the loss of a spouse. Drawing from her own loss, Neff walks with the reader through practical issues to a sense of encouragement.

Having originally found the WidowConnection site founded by this author, I immediately ordered the book when it was published. As God would have it, the book arrived just before a major storm so, with my power out for nearly 48 hrs., I ended up reading it straight thru in two marathon sessions. I was immediately struck by Miriam's warm style and way of connecting, I felt she was writing to me personally. She also has some VERY valuable advice within these pages, including on the practical matters that sometimes become overwhelming to those of us who've lost our spouse. I would HIGHLY recommend this book as a gift to a new widow -- I've already been on this sad journey for over a year and a half, but much of the counsel would have been even more helpful early on. What a blessing to have read these affirming and healing words; I'm going to re-read the book again soon as I think Miriam's wise and kind words will continue to bring insight, the book is multi-layered indeed.
As a recent widow, I thought the book was the closest to the reality that I experienced during the grieving period. It was the most realistic of the books I had read regarding this topic. I highly recommend it for widows and those who want to interact more appropriately to be supportive of them.
Because Miriam was a well-known author BEFORE becoming a widow, she had the innate ability to express those things most important to widows. I have worked with widows for years (I have 20 years of personal experience) and without fail, they say this is the most helpful book they have read on the subject. Miriam now has a ministry to widows - Widow Connection - so her helpful work goes on.
