ABC’s of Healthy Grieving by Harold Ivan Smith is a small, but excellent book for someone who has just begun the journey of grief.  “Each of the seventy-two, one- or two-page reflections begins with a letter of the alphabet coupled with a saying or theme.”  This format makes the “pearls of wisdom” easy to understand and to digest, especially for those who feel that reading a book at this stage of their grief would be rather daunting or unrealistic.
