Sudden Widow, A True Story of Love, Grief, Recovery, and How Badly It Can Suck! offers validation for widows in a world where many don’t understand the lifelong burden of grief, and the change those left behind must endure after a significant loss.
Bella Lynn Thompson uses an authentic and refreshing perspective to share her story which is both heartbreaking yet filled with humor. Left to raise two boys on her own after the sudden death of her husband, she had to learn how to navigate the pain of grief while continuing to be the parent her children needed her to be. Thompson's choice to power through even on the toughest days, the ones that sometimes do suck, will help her readers navigate their own experiences. This is the kind of story widows need. Life after the loss of a loved one is not just about starting over, it's also about what you need to learn to do to cope with the difficult days after.
