“With wit and good humor, Tidd looks back on the time immediately following her husband's death with charming self-deprecation at her seeming inability to be a good widow. Through this, she shows readers that there is no "right way" to grieve.” — Library Journal

Catherine Tidd's blog series not only deals with the immediate aftermath of the loss of a spouse, it also focuses on family, relationships, and moving forward in a life you might not recognize. From the beginning stages of grief to finding joy in an unexpected life, Catherine deals with these subjects with a warped sense of humor and a (sometimes) can-do attitude.


Anyone who has been faced with the devastating loss of a spouse has asked themselves this question: NOW WHAT? This video series answers that question (and more) through interviews with experts; from financial planning to numerology, we take a look at many areas of life after loss and how we can move forward with peace and purpose.
