Publisher's Summary

The way we deal with grief in the Western world is fundamentally broken. This inspiring guide to living a life after death aims to change that.

Peyton Salvage suffered the death of a loved one at an early age and learned that the way we approach death as a society does nothing to serve those struggling to cope with losing someone dear to them.

Losing a loved one is one of the most traumatic and heartbreaking events in a person's life. And yet, as a society, we're uncomfortable with allowing people to grieve in the way most natural to them, leaving mourners feeling isolated and ashamed of their grief. 

We tell them that everything happens for a reason and expect that to be enough. But that can't be right. How do you "get over" the loss of someone you loved? How do you move on like your love for them was nothing? 

By addressing grief from the view of both the mourner and those who comfort them, this uplifting book offers a gentle, guiding hand to help those impacted by death heal and find meaning in life afterward.

Healing from Death: A Lifelong Journey with Grief and Loss makes no promises about you "moving on" or "getting over" your grief. Instead, this book seeks to help you grow and live with your grief in a healthy way that honors the love you had for those you've lost.

I Received Understanding

I very much enjoyed this book. My Wife and I had lost two people each side of our family within a 30 day time period. We have not really had the opportunity to figure out the grieving from those who passed away. We just this weekend went to visit family and this book really opened my eyes to how everyone really griefs differently and how they are on different levels of griefs. It made it a lot easier to communicate with my family because I knew how to meet them where they were at. I am grateful to have found this book.

A relevant book for all

A much needed book for everyone! Death is a part of life and yet society and people in general never provided the best support to people grieving for a loved one. This book has helped me understand death differently and as a psychologist, I will definitely recommend this to my clients. Thank you for such an insightful and powerful book!

Amazing book

I really need it this. After losing my dad from cancer I had a really hard time to cope, as he was oversea I didn’t get a chance to see him before he pass. This book is healing my heart day by day, it is not easy but it is part of everyone’s journey. I highly recommended it to anyone that is grieving, struggling from losing a loved one.

I now know what I must do in the future to prevent the negative things away like denial,  depression, and anger built up after a loved one has left us. This book is very helpful and also touching. I Highly recommend if your feeling separated from the world after losing a loved one.

Motivating guide to continue

My grandmas sister passed and it had been tough to cope, because I knew that my grandma and grandpa are in the same age range.

This book not only helped me detect some triggers and learn to cope with them for my loss of my great aunt, but I feel more prepared to handle the inevitable losses of loved ones in the future.

Comprehensive and empathetic

I thought at first that this might be a bit of a depressing read, but quite the opposite actually. The author approaches death and grief from a place of empathy and compassion. Valuable tips are offered throughout that not only normalize any feeling you may be having, but also help you work through more effectively and perhaps even minimizing one’s suffering. I’d highly recommend this book to anyone dealing with the loss of a loved one!
