Reviewed by Karen Erlichman, DMin, LCSW

Sisters in Mourning is a unique, insightful, and intimate collection of stories and conversations among spiritual leaders and caregivers who are also adult daughters caring for and grieving their mothers. This book also provides some sample reflection questions, process guidelines, and lived examples that would lend themselves beautifully to other spiritual direction groups for adult children of all genders, races, spiritual traditions, and cultures.
