Davidson has gained a solid reputation as an author, counselor and educator. She has devoted much time to the needs of the bereaved and her gifts emerge from her story and from her extensive experience as a caring presence. This comes through in this carefully prepared outline. That is what it is. A book of lines for journaling with key words, thoughts and, most of all, "invitations" along the way for the journalist, the griever, to claim a point of connection. There are approaches through memories, feelings, relationships, social history, health, beliefs and more. A very good friend for the bereaved.
