Gwen Romagnoli has written numerous personal essays as well as travel and food articles for the Boston Globe, the Los Angeles Times, and the American Express Magazine. She lived for many years in Italy, but met her Roman husband, Franco, in the U.S. Together they wrote the book, Italy, the Romagnoli Way: A Culinary Journey, about lesser-known places in Italy. Their late-in-life marriage was sadly cut short by Franco's death. This book is dedicated to his memory. "Gwen Romagnoli has written these essays in simple, limpid prose, a style casual and friendly, with a feeling that comes straight from the heart. These brief essays offer rare comfort. Gwen Romagnoli's Learning to be a Widow is about the little things--everyday objects and events-- that connected her deeply to her husband, and how she lives now with these memories. By speaking so directly about her own experience, she gives solace to others who are making their own hard journey." --Eugene Mirabelli, author of Renato, the Painter "Gwen Romagnoli's book is about widowhood, but you do not have to be a widow to find pleasure and poignancy in these pages. It is a narrative about love and loss, and finding meaning in relationships, at any age and in any circumstance. Sensitively observed and beautifully written." -- Jessica Treadway, author of Lacy Eye "This remarkable book--a love story, really--leads the reader through widowhood with gentleness and compassion. Best of all, although it is a wrenching narrative of loss, the book also offers hope to those who once loved - and hope to love again." -- Lynne Potts, author of A Block in Time: A History of Boston's South End "Writing with brave honesty and generosity of spirit, Gwen Romagnoli is a treasured companion through a harsh terrain. Though her words describe a deeply personal experience, they carry a universality to embrace all who are acquainted with grief." -- Ellen Steinbaum, poet and contributor to the poetry anthology, The Widows' Handbook

“Now I know that every single day, the best and the worst, only lasts for twenty-four hours.” —Tricia Lott Williford, And Life Comes Back When your life falls apart—through a death, a lost relationship, a diagnosis—you want more than anything to know that your pain has a purpose. And that beyond your pain, a new day awaits. Tricia Lott Williford discovered this in a few tragic hours when her thirty-five-year-old husband died unexpectedly. In And Life Comes Back, she writes with soaring prose about her tender, brave journey as a widow with two young boys in the agonizing days and months that followed his death. And Life Comes Back documents the tenacity of love, the exquisite transience of each moment, and the laughter that comes even in loss. This traveler’s guide to finding new life after setbacks offers no easy answers or glib spiritual maxims but instead draws you into your own story and the hope that waits for you even now.

What happens when your husband dies unexpectedly in the prime of your life and marriage? In Widow’s Might, Kim Knight shares her experience when her husband suddenly and unexpectedly died at fifty-six years old. In one day, Kim went from planning her future with her best friend to planning a funeral, searching for passwords to online accounts, trying to return to normal when things were no longer normal, and finding God in the middle of trauma and grief. Widow’s Might is for young or middle-aged widows and those who love them. The book helps those who’ve experienced a tragic loss to better understand the confusing and unpredictable path of grief as well as the challenges and promise of new growth. Learning to embrace a life different from the one you imagined isn’t something you’re going to master by the end of year one, when your family and friends think you should, or when you hope you might. You can deeply embrace and honor your marriage to your late spouse and still find contentment, happiness, and maybe even love in the days ahead. Widow’s Might will give you the strength and wisdom to discover new life on the other side of death. Look toward what God has in store for you. And—every once in a while—spend the day in your pajamas and eat popcorn for dinner. It’s okay.

Unlike anything Joyce Carol Oates has written before, A Widow’s Story is the universally acclaimed author’s poignant, intimate memoir about the unexpected death of Raymond Smith, her husband of forty-six years, and its wrenching, surprising aftermath. A recent recipient of National Book Critics Circle Ivan Sandrof Lifetime Achievement Award, Oates, whose novels (Blonde, The Gravedigger’s Daughter, Little Bird of Heaven, etc.) rank among the very finest in contemporary American fiction, offers an achingly personal story of love and loss. A Widow’s Story is a literary memoir on a par with The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion and Calvin Trillin’s About Alice.
