Stricken: The 5,000 Stages of Grief is a collection of essays written as much for its contributors as for its readers, since each essay is born of personal experience. Stricken reflects the truth that grief stems from many sources, comes in many forms, and affects each of us in very different ways. These essays are intended to console, comfort, inspire and empower, and to serve as a valuable resource, as the writers in this volume bravely demonstrate that grief cannot be gotten over--it must be gotten through.
"Delving into personal stories of sadness and renewal, I came away from this collection changed. Stricken is a book that makes you feel less alone in the world."--Amanda Eyre Ward, author of How To Be Lost and Forgive Me
