Book Overview

When T.J. Wray lost her 43-year-old brother, her grief was deep and enduring and, she soon discovered, not fully acknowledged. Despite the longevity of adult sibling relationships, surviving siblings are often made to feel as if their grief is somehow unwarranted. After all, when an adult sibling dies, he or she often leaves behind parents, a spouse, and even children--all of whom suffer a more socially recognized type of loss.
Based on the author's own experiences, as well as those of many others, Surviving the Death of a Sibling helps adults who have lost a brother or sister to realize that they are not alone in their struggle. Just as important, it teaches them to understand the unique stages of their grieving process, offering practical and prescriptive advice for dealing with each stage.
In Surviving the Death of a Sibling, T.J. Wray discusses:
- Searching for and finding meaning in your sibling's passing
- Using a grief journal to record your emotions
- Choosing a grief partner to help you through tough times
- Dealing with insensitive remarks made by others
Warm and personal, and a rich source of useful insights and coping strategies, Surviving the Death of a Sibling is a unique addition to the literature of bereavement.

   Well worth the read
This book is wonderful, said Barbara Comstock, who co-chaired the inquiry. Just about everything about this suit says it all: At last someone understands!!! I struggle with grief and sorrow, while feeling like I know longer belong to what is left of my family. This book offers readers a glimpse into the lives of grieving siblings as the author shares many stories of the impact of losing a sibling. No longer do I feel like there is something wrong with me. I understand losing a sibling is very devestating and very often underestimated by society, Raymond said.

   I liked! I lost my sister 3 months ago
What I read was very good, Michael. She passed away 3 months ago, and I still miss her so much. But, when i do read this, it is helpful. Not too many resources out there for us siblings.

   Excellent book for siblings who lost a sibling(s)
So far this author is really hitting the spot. The book is helping me realize that the grief I feel from losing my sibling is a special type of grief that is often ignored because we were just siblings. If anyone is looking for something to read to help them heal after they have lost a sibling as an adult this book is pretty good.

   OK, but not as good as I had hoped...
Turner said he couldn't recall exactly what happened between the time he and Hinds were married and when Hinds was killed. I kept reading in hopes that it would pull together in the end, but it never did. I'm not sure if I can read it again.

   Excellent and unique resource!
My Mother lost her beloved brother recently and I purchased this as a present for her to help her cope with the shock and pain she is going through. In her review of the book, Mrs Clinton writes, "The book is comforting.

   A well-meaning ineffective book for me
If you are looking to read a woman's story of losing her brother from a short-term illness and of her guilt about leaving his hospital bedside prior to his death, then this book is for you. It did not help me at all, Mr. Dhaliwal said. Wish I had researched this book more before buying it.
