Beschreibung

The death of a life partner poses unique challenges for lesbians. Lesbian Widows: Invisible Grief reveals the touching and very personal stories of twenty-five women, including the author, who were widowed at a young age and forced to create a new life without their life partners. The widows discuss their efforts to create funerals and memorial services, give their accounts of the overwhelming grief throughout the first two years, and explain the legal and financial discrimination they encountered. The book provides an insightful look into the grieving and recovery process, offers practical advice about coping techniques, and ultimately inspires hope for anyone mourning their loss with the knowledge that others have survived this tragedy.
