Loving Again explores the lives of twenty-six couples who have experienced the death of a spouse and have fallen in love again. The lingering presence of a deceased partner, reactions of friends and family, and cultural expectations for widows and widowers effect the journey to new love in this delicate context. These real life stories help to dispel commonly held beliefs about grieving and loving as readers discover: Not all widows and widowers are devastated by spousal death; there is no magical one year of grieving; new love can unexpectedly facilitate grieving; love, loss and grief can co-exist; space can be made for a deceased partner within a new relationship; and new love can happen at any age. Loving Again reveals the joys and challenges of opening oneself to new relationships. Read how these couples learned to live with loss and love again.
