    Description

    Melissa Gould’s hopeful memoir of grieving outside the box and the surprising nature of love.

    When Melissa Gould’s husband, Joel, was unexpectedly hospitalized, she could not imagine how her life was about to change. Overwhelmed with uncertainty as Joel’s condition tragically worsened, she offered him the only thing she could: her love and devotion. Her dedication didn’t end with his death.

    Left to resume life without her beloved husband and raise their young daughter on her own, Melissa soon realized that her and Joel’s love lived on. Melissa found she didn’t fit the typical mold of widowhood or meet the expectations of mourning. She didn’t look like a widow or act like a widow, but she felt like one. Melissa was widowish.

    Melissa’s personal journey through grief and beyond includes unlikely inspiration from an evangelical preacher, the calming presence of some Real Housewives, and the unexpected attention of a charming musician.

    A modern take on loss, Widowish illuminates the twists of fate that break our world, the determination that keeps us moving forward, and the surprises in life we never see coming.

    She had me until The Other Joel

    Very compelling memoir, artfully narrated. Unfortunately, when she started singing the praises of a con man like Joel Osteen, she lost me big time.

    A Memoir that reads like fiction.

    I was hesitant to read this due to the title and what my expectations were for the books subject matter, I was wrong. This was a lovely piece of literary that reads like a fiction story. I loved the pace of the book and the timeline, I wanted to know what was going to happen next. It wasn’t bogged down in medical jargon or a long drawn out goodbye. The love for the author and her husband read like a modern day love story; not to schmaltzy with the right amount of profound love and partnership. I would love to know how the story continues with Melissa and Marcos, the relationship with her daughter, Sophie and her dealing with the loss of her Dad as she matures. It was a real understanding of the grief someone deals with after someone they love dies. Would make a great movie.
