Someone Died...Now What Book Review and Giveaway

Loss is an unfortunate part of life. While we hope that our loved ones will be parts of our lives for a long, long time--the reality is that they will be taken from our lives before we are ready.  We recently had the opportunity to read and review Someone Died...Now What by Corrie Sirota--and we have a copy (as well as other book tour prizes) for our readers to enter to win in the giveaway at the end of this post. What was our review of Someone Died...Now What by Corrie Sirota.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for use in our review. All opinions are my own.

Quick Summary of Someone Died...Now What. Someone Died… Now What? is a GPS for grieving. Corrie Sirota provides Guidance, Perspective and Support to help navigate through the grief process. Whether someone you love has died or someone you know is struggling with a loss, this book addresses many of the issues and questions that surface, providing concrete assistance on what to do immediately following a death, how to deal with feelings of sadness, anger and guilt, non-death losses and how to support grieving children. You will learn that grief is an ongoing process, and is as unique and individual as you are.

Sirota creates both a personal and a practical guide for those grieving. Sirota writes in a very, clear concise manner--making a guide that is both easy to read and easy to apply to our lives. She keeps reality in check as she not only offers tips for managing the grieving process--but, for keeping up with the duties and responsibilities left for families and friends of those lost. 

Sirota packs a lot of useful information into a small space. Do not let the book's page length detract from the value of this book. The author fills the pages in an orderly, easy to digest fashion--and offers reminders and helpful advice on each page. 

Would I recommend Someone Died...Now What? While there is no "correct" way to cope with loss or grief--there are ways to help those left behind. Whether you are trying to manage your feelings with a personal loss--or are trying to help someone else move beyond a death--there are pages in this book for everyone.
