We knew and loved our mothers our whole life. It's no mystery why losing them hurts so much and why it takes so long to heal.
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) January 08, 2019
Author Elaine Mallon has released "Healing After the Loss of Your Mother: A Grief & Comfort Manual" ($14.95, paperback, 9781733538909; $9.99, ebook, 9781733538930), a practical, step-by-step guidebook for those mourning the loss of their mother and for supporters hoping to help a loved one through grief. It is a book of comfort, guidance, and hope.
Mallon’s insight into grief comes from the heartbreaking experience of losing her mother suddenly and unexpectedly. Devastated and unprepared for how life-changing and painful processing the loss would be, Mallon found herself wondering: “Where’s the manual?” and “How do I do this?”
“This is the book I desperately needed when my own mom died," says Mallon. "It is an essential companion for anyone uncertain about what to do or where to turn after their mother’s death."
Like a compassionate friend, Mallon captures the raw, unique pain of losing your mother with empathy, honesty, and eloquence. She guides the reader through each step of the grieving process, offering straightforward answers to many common questions and tenderly addressing fears faced by those in mourning, as well.
