Item Description...
The well-known figure shares her personal tragedy--the death in 1989 of her husband--describing the feelings caused by the loss of a spouse and offering readers the knowledge she gained during her period of grief and recovery. Reprint.

Publishers Description
In 1989, Dr. Joyce Brothers's husband of more than thirty years, Dr. Milton Brothers, passed away. As a widow, Dr. Brothers found herself emotionally lost and alone, at sea in an ocean of grief -- until she dealt with her despair, overcame her loneliness, and, gradually, put her life back together again.
In WIDOWED, Dr. Brothers shares this intimate journey and offers the knowledge she has gained along the way. In her personal, comforting way, Dr. Joyce Brothers describes the very real incidents and feelings that every woman who has lived through the death of a spouse will immediately recognize.
Here is compassionate insight on confronting grief and loss, coping with the myriad emotions that bombard a widow, and handling the pain and self-pity that ultimately lead to change. This is the book you can turn to for support, strength, and, most importantly, a glimpse of hope.
"Crammed with good advice, generously coated with genuine compassion, WIDOWED is must reading." -- The Pittsburgh Press

Great Book!  Sep 20, 2006
I am fairly young and recently widowed and I never would have thought I would get anything out of this book but I happened upon it in the bookstore and I was totally wrong. This is the first book that really hit home with me. I feel that a lot of the ideas that Dr. Joyce Brothers presented really validated my feelings and as a psychologist really explained it such as the scientific explanation of how tears help in the healing process. I definitely recommend it.
"He is always with me."  Jun 19, 2006
Most self-help books for widows focus on ways to "get over" the grief. Dr. Brothers rightly says one never gets over the loneliness of widowhood, although it does lessen with time. She describes in detail the illness and death of her husband of 39 years, and her desperation and loss of purpose so common to those bereaved. It's easy to identify with her "two steps forward, one step back" progress, and and she is candid about her pain and suicidal thoughts. She wisely spends only a few pages at the end on the usual "tips" for getting on with life after loss.

This book is not just for widows; anyone who has lost a loved one will feel better after reading this book, just knowing that someone else has gone through it and shares your feelings. Her realization that the sharp pain had gradually, imperceptibly, lessened is realistic and heartening. Recommended.
Widowed  Feb 25, 2006
This was a gift for someone else, but I have read this book and learned a lot from it.
Great book  Mar 25, 2005
My sister sent me this book after I'd been widowed for only a year. The timing was perfect--I don't think I could have read it before that time. Dr Brothers captured what I'd gone through with her personal experience. I saw myself on almost every page throughout the book. Excellent book to let you know that your feelings, while unique to you, are also universal.
widowed  Apr 27, 2001
I was widowed nine years ago. I was lost, because I depended so much on my husband's financial and emotional support. I was lucky, because he planned ahead. Reading this book helped me so much to learn to make decision, and manage my own financial. Since then, I have been buying these books to give to friends who also have met this situation. Unfortunately "widowed" of Dr. Joyce Brothers are no longer available in Manila, Philippines. J. Yao
