Carole Brody Fleet, author of Happily Even After, shares heartfelt advice on recovering from the loss of a spouse.

Happily Even After: Getting Through (and Beyond) The Grief of Widowhood

"This book is recommended for its authentic depiction of the widow's experience." — Spirituality & Practice

Carole Brody Fleet has published the second article in her "Bereavement Boot Camp," a series of writings on Huffington Post that speak to the experiences of grief, loss, widowhood, and recovery. Carole is an expert in bereavement and recovery, and authored the groundbreaking guide Happily Even After to help widows on the path to healing.

This installment focuses on how a widow or widower can deal with the hurtful and insensitive phrase "get over it." As Carole explains, "There is absolutely no such thing as getting 'over it'. The phrase is a complete myth (along with time healing all wounds)."

This common misconception can be damaging for the recently bereaved to hear, because the healing journey takes time, and the hurt from a lost love never entirely fades.

Happily Even After is the 2013 recipient of the prestigious Books for a Better Life Award.
