Nothing can shield you or prepare you for the brutal reality and crippling pain of a death and its repercussions. Author Kate Boydell was widowed at the age of 33. Left with two young daughters, nothing prepared her for the way the death of her husband would affect every aspect of her life, as she describes in Death And How to Survive It: A Unique, Practical and Uplifting Guide to Coming to Terms with the Loss of Your Partner. But Boydell got through it — and so can everyone. In this down-to-earth, practical, insightful and sometimes humorous guide, she draws on her own experience of bereavement to offer frank advice on coping with every aspect of the grieving process. It includes: coping with the initial shock, telling your children, organizing the funeral, shopping and cooking, and getting back into dating. This softcover book contains 278 pages and is available for 20% below retail at $17.95, plus $4.95 Priority Mail shipping. Send check to Greg Abbott, 456 Larkin St. #1, Monterey, CA 93940, or call (831) 521-9515 with credit card information.

Nearly all writings about deceased children are poignant, but they rarely have the power to move readers as far beyond the sentimental response as novelist P.F. Thomése does in this small, grand book. Brief enough to be read in a sitting, it is as resonant as a poem. One pauses and lingers after each of the 50 meditations. Thomése's prose is spare and beautiful, as he describes the ambulance, the hospital, the death and the empty nursery. He shares — rather than parades — literary and musical references. Grieving parents will find a knowing companion in Thomése, but even those who haven't experienced such trauma will find this evocative book a treasure. This hardcover book contains 116 pages and is priced 15% below retail at $14.40, plus $4.95 Priority Mail shipping. Send check to Greg Abbott, 456 Larkin St. #1, Monterey, CA 93940, or call (831) 521-9515 with credit card information.

From the touching to the transcendent, the universal sentiments expressed in this anthology of inscriptions and epitaphs portray a poignant slice of ancient lives: their joy in the temporal life, their grief at its passing and their faith in an eternal life of bliss. Rest Lightly: An Anthology of Latin and Greek Tomb Inscriptions by Paul Shore includes 30 engaging inscriptions and 13 plates/illustrations from the 1st through the 7th centuries with transcriptions, annotations and verse translations into English. Their very strangeness, newness and offbeat character, as well as their frequent beauty, stimulate interest and command attention. This soft cover book has 74 pages and is available for $17.95 plus $5.95 Priority Mail shipping from Greg Abbott, 456 Larkin St. #1, Monterey, CA 93940, or by calling (831) 521-9515 with credit card information.
