Who Am I? What Do I Do Now? HAPPILY EVEN AFTER Answers Real, Practical, Essential Questions for Widows and Widowers.
Even as these are the two most immediate questions faced by widow/ers, Carole Brody Fleet knows as well as anyone who has faced the abrupt change from couple to single person, those questions multiply exponentially as time goes on.
In HAPPILY EVEN AFTER: A Guide to Getting Through (and Beyond) the Grief of Widowhood, Brody Fleet addresses the most commonly asked questions by widows and those who surround them.
When Carole lost her husband at age forty, there were no resources that spoke directly to her needs as a young widow. The books she turned to spoke only about grief, but Carole knew that focusing on grief was going to keep her in a place of sorrow.
Twelve years later, she is the Founder and CEO of Widows Wear Stilettos, Inc., a non-profit organization and website founded in 2006 and devoted to service. With a monthly newsletter and her partnership in two annual conventions (lovingly referred to as Camp Widow™ and presented by the Soaring Spirits Loss Foundation), Carole’s brand is a recognized imprimatur of quality and trust among grief counselors, therapists and widows themselves.
The questions and issues surrounding the loss of a spouse are numerous and complex immediately following the death as well as months and years later. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are an estimated 15 - 20 million widows in this country and that number is rising. Over a million of those are under the age of forty. Carole Brody Fleet’s mission is to lead her readers and the entire widowed community (regardless of age, gender, "technical" marital status or sexual orientation) in a decidedly future-focused direction, giving them the tools, reassurance and confidence to move into a new life.
