Widow's Journey: A Return to the Loving Self

Xenia Rose, Author Henry Holt & Company $19.45 (205p) ISBN 978-0-8050-1193-7
The widow of renowned cellist Leonard Rose, who died in 1984, universalizes the experience of a spouse's bereavement in this self-help book. When her 20-year marriage was ended by death, Rose had difficulty in rediscovering her own identity. Following her experience in a support group of similarly mourning men and women, she resumed her work as a psychotherapist. One of Rose's tenets is that such sharing reduces the survivor's feelings of being alone and unique in grief. In addition to her own story, she offers vignettes of her clients and paths they took to restructuring their lives after the death of a spouse. The author, now remarried, addresses the problems of survivorship with forthright advice and practical suggestions to ``make widowhood a little more bearable.'' (Oct.)
