For many people, the death of a partner comes suddenly and without warning. When Jan Robinson’s husband died, she found herself at a loss as to what to do – how to organise a funeral, her husband’s money affairs, and, later, how to cope with crying and talking to children and grandchildren about her late husband.
She ended up writing a book called Tips From Widows, which is a collection of wisdom from other widows she met and spoke to during the grieving process.
Dr Valerie Bresnihan, a widow of four years, has been reading the book for us.
TIPS FROM WIDOWS by Jan Robinson is published by Bloomsbury
