50 Ways To Grieve Your Lover

‘An amazing array of emotions resulted reading it, happiness, sadness and hope’

‘My sincere wish is that you don’t ever need a book like this, but if you do, I hope that the lessons I’ve learnt will help you find new ways to smile again and gain back control.’ Glennys Marsdon

The book is written as a series of 50 light-hearted emails to a friend. It contains: 100 Tips; 85 quotes; cartoon images from Michael Collins dec. Glennys wrote the book a few years ago after the sudden passing of her partner Michael, and finding few books about the period after the funeral, and none with any element of humour. She was fortunate enough to have a degree in psychology behind me, however she also spent months devouring any information she could get that would tell me what to expect, and whether she was ‘normal’ !? A year later a very good friend asked for advice, so she fired off an email titled ’10 things I’ve learnt so far’. After a coffee and several chocolate biscuits the list grew to 50 things, and she felt compelled to write the book.

Copies have also been purchased by: Carers Australian (WA); Solaris Cancer Support; New Zealand Counsellors Association; Grief counsellors in Queensland and the Australian Red Cross Society. Copies were also bought to help survivors of the Victorian Bush Fires (via the Australian Red Cross), and counsellors working on the New Zealand Pike Mine Disaster.
