Ten Candid Perspectives on Marriage and Widowhood

Becoming A Widow is a collection of ten women’s journeys as they navigate their transition from two to one.

What began as one woman’s struggle to understand her widowed grief became an assortment of comparisons. Nine other widows wrote their stories, bonding empathetically, curious about how each had handled their loss. All ten successfully navigated the art of living alone gracefully.

The widows’ timelines vary. Some write from the perspective of years gone by; others are barely three years into widowhood.

Some frankly describe unpleasant marital situations as a means of calming themselves from the heartbreak of missing their mates, intent on not glorifying their marital past, but instead replacing sadness with the positive intentionality of openly embracing future choices.

Each widow offers her personal views on moving past grief, forward into enduring modern day life despite world chaos and political unease.

These widows have filled this book with relatable stories—both sad and happy—the same and yet as unique as any life lived.
