KIRKUS REVIEW

A mother-and-daughter collaboration which combines physical and emotional, spiritual and practical thoughts about death from the immediate reactions of shock and tears and insomnia which follow to the confusion and regrets and remorse which often beset the bereaved. Emphasizing the belief in immortality, they stress that only lack of knowledge and of faith cause the tragedy of death, include many inspirational texts from the Bible as well as living examples (Lou Gehrig's widow; Natalie Kalmus- the Technicolour Director-at the bedside of her sister- etc.). There are also the financial problems to be faced, the setting up of the estate, as well as the later sublimation of the loss in other interests and unselfish causes; there's a bit about the death of a parent, the death of a child, as well as some words about the preparation for one's own death. Some may well find inspirational value here; others may find it a little hard to take.
