"Tackling one of life's great mysteries, Rabbi Ben Kamin examines the diverse ways we mourn the death of a loved one. Drawn from his fort-plus years of counseling the bereaved, Kamin shares stories filled with people from all walks of life to provide thoughtful insights on how we encounter and endure grief. Using his own experience of the heartbreaking loss of his father, he stresses the importance of not deferring the process of grieving at the risk of harming one's physical, emotional, and spiritual health.
