Synopsis: This fourth updated and revised edition of "ON YOUR OWN" provides practical advice to the recent widow to help her achieve emotional and financial stability. This classic best selling book for widows is coauthored by Alexandra Armstrong, a nationally recognized financial planner who has worked with many widows over the years, and Dr. Mary Donahue, a psychologist who is experienced in grief counseling. The authors firmly believe there is a strong connection between the widow's emotional and financial recovery from the pain of widowhood. They think that to focus on one to the exclusion of the other prevents sucessful recovery since the two issues are intertwined. When the widow gains control of her financial situation, then it makes it easier to heal emotionally and vice versa. "ON YOUR OWN" leads the widow through the recovery process step by step, providing practical advice which should help her move forward to achieve emotional and financial stability. In this book they show the widow how to: . Cope with your loss . Deal with your emotional needs . Organize your finances . Construct a realistic budget . Understand your investments . Develop a long-term financial plan The book is made more interesting and meaningful as the reader follows the stories of four widows ages 40 to 80 as they move in each chapter through the various stages of recovery. Although the book is written primarily for widows, any adult woman who wishes to take control of her life would benefit from reading this book. As one widow said after reading the book: "Yours is the only book that truly approaches it from the woman's viewpoint and clarifies what is a mass of strange and threatening terms and tasks.. You have done an important thing in a beautiful way. Thank you from my heart and my checkbook!"

From the Publisher: On Your Own Does Not Mean All Alone

The loss of your husband is likely to be the most traumatic event of your life. You did not choose this painful passage, and chances are you are overwhelmed by the events you now have to face.

In the third edition of this bestselling classic, you will be taken through a series of steps, each designed to help you cope with the psychological and financial issues of widowhood. The book shows you how to respond to the grief you are feeling and move on to reach a state of emotional and financial well-being. Authors Alexandra Armstrong, Certified Financial Planner, and Dr. Mary Donahue, psychologist, firmly believe that there is a connection between your financial and psychological recovery. From mourning through recovery, they will show you how to:

* React to your loss.
* Deal with your emotional needs.
* Develop a psychological and financial support group.
* Organize your finances.
* Develop a budget that works for you.
* Develop a long-term financial plan.
* Protect your assets.
* Start over by moving on.

By sharing the stories of four widows, On Your Own will help you identify factors in your own life that will likely play a role as you move through the various stages of grief. You will probably recognize yourself in one or more of these women. These profiles, combined with the advice, checklists, and worksheets included in On Your Own, will guide you through this very difficult time, as you start your new lifeon your own.

Praise for the previous edition:

"From facing your initial reactions through rebuilding your life, the authors deal with difficult issues clearly and realistically. This is a thoughtful and reliable book to help anyone through the shock and confusion of widowhood." --Modern Maturity
