Publisher's Summary

I spent my 11th wedding anniversary planning my husband's funeral. If I could just figure out how to make that rhyme, it would be the beginning of a great country song.  

Involuntarily single. That's the true story of where Catherine Tidd finds herself just three weeks after turning 31. Widowed with three children under six years old, a rusty resume, no fix-it skills, and no clue how to live life as a widow, Catherine can't help but be a little exasperated with her dead husband for leaving her to deal with life on her own.  

Catherine's now in charge of her life in a way she never wanted to be, in a way that would have most of us reeling and numb. But she soon realizes that when you call the shots, you can make pedicures one of the stages of grief - and that moving forward might be more fun in a new sports car. 

Her honest Confessions of a Mediocre Widow is a glimpse into the heartbreaking and sometimes humorous world of a young woman who learns it is possible to find joy in an unexpected life.

Love this book! Such an insightful, honest book.

This is a great book not only for widows but for anyone that has suffered loss such as divorce. It’s also good for family and friends to read to gain some insight into what the widow you know may be going through and how to support them.
