A Widow’s Awakening

By Maryanne Pope

“I just finished A Widow’s Awakening and loved it! So many parallels…crazy! At times, I felt like I was reading my own story…call from work, ER, going brain-dead, working with transplant team, Honour Guard funeral, looking for love, feeling like cheating, frequent grave visitor, sleeping pills, grief, grief, grief…cry, cry, cry. It just sucks!”

– Kimberley M, Calgary, AB

“I started reading A Widow’s Awakening on Sunday and finished it Monday. The first third of your book touched me in ways I hadn’t anticipated. I cried so hard, my eyes became swollen; the pain was so real. I haven’t cried that hard in a long, long time. The grief you expressed was so real to me, as I experienced my own grief in a similar way. Reading your book has been healing for me.”

“I bought your book yesterday and meant to wait until the next day to read it. I crawled into bed and tried to sleep but something kept at me. So I crawled out of bed and read your book from start to finish. It was amazing. I couldn’t put it down.”

 “My heart is beating harder and my breathing shorter. I am hugging my husband tighter and kissing him longer. I have burnt supper while reading! I have read books until wee hours of the night but I have not felt this much about a book before. You are an incredibly gifted writer…I feel like I am right beside you and that I am getting to know John and your relationship together. I love how he loved you. I love your writing style, how brilliantly you tie everything together and how you authentically share your soul.”
