Schiff's new book is broader in scope than her Bereaved Parent ( LJ 3/15/77). It gets a plus for acknowledging all mourners: the spouse, children, siblings, other family members, and a group generally omittedfriends. Included are all the topics found in other books dealing with death and dyingsorrow, denial, anger, guilt, depression, and acceptanceas are the issues of powerlessness and the uses of faith. Throughout, Schiff's strong belief in faith is visible but not overpowering. The final section of the book is a brief guide for support groups. Useful for both mourners and support group facilitators, the book is recommended for public and medical libraries. Jean E. Crampon, Southern Illinois Univ. Sch. of Medicine, Springfield
