Transcending Loss has helped thousands and thousands of grievers understand how to grieve and how to live with loss. Unlike other grief books that imply there is an “end” to the process, this book acknowledges and honors the lifelong process of integrating loss into life. It also shows how to channel pain into avenues that make meaning out of loss.
