A fantastic book on grief and grieving for our parents as we face/become adult orphans. The term "orphan" is one I have used to describe how I feel many times since my mothers terminal diagnosis. Facing losing her has made me lose my sense of stability, security, identity, as if the world is being ripped from under my feet. This book perfectly reflects my feelings, and what many before me have faced when they have had to deal with losing one or both parents. It is articulate, well written, contains thorough and precise thinking and it is highly recommended anyone who is close to their parents and struggling to find their feet again after loos, pick up this book and keep it close.
