When the Bottom Drops Out: Book Review
Author Robert Bugh
List Price: 14.99
Release: October 2011
When the bottom drops out is a book that has so much pain and so much joy within it. With each page, you get a picture of what grief of a spouse is all about. He speaks of all the emotions one goes through in this difficult time.
Following his journey through these trails is one reason why I choose this book. I like to read into people’s emotions. While going through a difficult time in my life, I wrote, and now as I sit back and re-read those letters to myself, I am completely amazed how much truth and emotion comes out.
I thought the book was a powerful account of Rob's grief which stemmed from cancer diagnosis and death's of Rob's friend Tom and his wife Carol. I thought there would have been more self-help encouragement for others in the book, but it was mostly an account of Rob's experience with dealing with grief when life throws it your way. Although I completely and fully sympathize with him, I wish there would have been more references to the Bible and tools for others who are experiencing similar grief to help and encourage them in their walk.
