Review by Marlisa L. Mills, MSW LCAS, Director of Bereavement and Family Support Services, Connecticut Hospice, Inc.: Dr. Joanne Moore shares her unique perspective on how to not only survive the loss of a spouse, but also how to handle the small things that frequently overwhelm widows and widowers. This is an excellent book with down to earth, practical guidance. As a bereavement director in a large hospice, I intend to use this book for my families.
When Dr. Moore was widowed, she sought mentors for living in a new way. She was inspired by the stories of more experienced widows and widowers. This prompted her to found the magazine, Pathfinder: A Companion Guide for the Widow/er’s Journey, and write After the Loss of a Spouse: What's Next?
Dr. Moore's story and passion for supporting others is told in Right This Minute’s “There is Life After Loss” and “Pathfinder Helps People Find Theirs.” She is a Distinguished Toastmaster (Toastmaster International), and enjoys speaking on end of life and bereavement issues.
