This is a useful guide to help people through a difficult time. The narrator has a very nice tone to his voice and as well as acknowledging emotional issues, takes you through various practical points which need to be looked at.
Immediately after bereavement an individual usually flounders dealing with unaccustomed situations. This little book is an invaluable aid and guide where most people are dealing with problems that they have never dealt with before and don't generally know who to ask.
The information provided in this book is so important for those going through such bereavement.
The narration was empathetic, but not sympathetic. Exactly the right tone for this subject matter. I really enjoyed listening to his calming voice.
