Great book, good narration

I thought this book was very well written and informative. Especially when entering a relationship with a widower. it gives good feedback om what it acceptable when you question if you are not trying to be cold or unsympathetic. I really like the boundaries and red flags. My favorite part though was listening to all the other stories.

Amazing Bòok...Must read!

This Book was so on point with the relationship I just got out of with a widower. It sounded like he was reading my story . I couldn't believe how accurate he was with everything my widower said and did. I am heartbroken over the breakup but this book has helped me understand so many things . it has given me the closure I needed to move on that I'll never get from my ex. It doesn't make the pain anyless but it confirms that what I was feeling during the relationship about how I was being treated as always being second and compared to a ghost. the shrine of pictures everywhere, the fb posts. I was constantly being hurt and when I mentioned my feelings, I was told I was jealous and crazy for feeling that way . It's a relief to know I wasn't the one with the problem. Thank you so much Abel, you saved me from the constant thoughts about what did I do wrong and how can I fix it.

very helpful for someone in uncharted water

I still have questions because the only thing this did not cover was when you were her best friend.

Still read this book it is immensely helpful in navigating the complex world of loving a widower.

great book. take out of it what you can use

I had to accept his suggestions and use what will work for me. my widower was married 35 years. I don't feel he should have to take all her pictures down. she was his wife for over half his life. she was a part of him that made him who he was today. He did take pictures out of the bedroom and moved his wedding ring to middle finger after a discussion. yes he created the solution to his widower problem and is currently making actions to let her go and making me first.

Amazing assistance with dating my widower

I started dating a beautiful kind and respectful widower a couple of months ago and although I always feel like number one in his life and his heart there were some topics I needed help with as I’ve never dated a widower before and none of my girlfriends did either. The book was very succinct and to the point, greatly narrated and I really enjoyed it and learnt a lot. I listened to it twice and will probably listen to it again to refresh. Thank you Abel for sharing your story.
