2017 Foreword INDIES Bronze Winner
"Hone shows us how to harness the (thankfully common) power of our own resilience to work our way through a horrible loss."--The New York Times Book Review
"A recommended new book for those who are grieving . . . [Hone's] metaphor for life after loss is both powerful and apt: Think of it as a scattered jigsaw puzzle, where the pieces of one's former life have been scattered and now must be reconfigured in a new way."--The Wall Street Journal
"The text provides an honest account of the personal struggles of families who experience sudden loss. There are no apologies made for stepping away from what some would consider social expectations during times of grief. It is that naked vulnerability that brings authority to the work."--Choice
"There is a wealth of empathetic information in this book that will undoubtedly be uplifting to all who are grieving or know of others in the process."--Library Journal
"A touching account of loss and a practical, research-based guide for finding hope and strength."--Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Originals and Option B
