Aftermath: Growing in Grace Through Grief by Margaret McSweeney


When someone we love dies, we experience a myriad of feelings—anger, grief, and denial being a few of these feelings.  Margaret McSweeney helps us along this journey in this encouraging look at the various stages of grief.  She writes with candor and honesty about the rollercoaster. She shares her personal journey through her through her own grief at the death of her mother.

I found great comfort from the quote from C.S. Lewis about anger at God.  I lost my own son last May and I found myself angry at my son for leaving and at God for taking him..

This book should be a reference book for anyone going through grief or when the feeling of loss return after the “time” for grief is over.  Believe these emotions will return again and again.
