The period following the death of a loved one can be a time of great turmoil. This sensitive book acts as a supportive road map through the initial period of loss, and through the weeks and months that follow. The authors address not only the emotional and spiritual aspects of bereavement, but also important and often overlooked practical considerations such as dealing with wills and other paperwork, disposing of personal possessions, making arrangements for funerals and memorial services, coping with the anniversaries of a death and resolving family conflict. Drawing on many real examples, they offer compassionate, realistic advice on dealing with guilt and other negative emotions, as well as helpful guidance on how and when to break the news of a death to others, including to children, people with learning disabilities and people with dementia. This will be an invaluable guide for anyone who has experienced, or who is facing, a bereavement. It will also be of interest to professionals involved in supporting those who are bereaved, both as a source of helpful information and as a resource to recommend to clients.

Capturing the hearts and imaginations of millions worldwide, Bertrice Small's novels always deliver the lush sensuality her readers expect. In Just Beyond Tomorrow, Jasmine's strong-willed son, Patrick Leslie, continues Skye's Legacy when he takes a wife who wants no husband. . . Just Beyond Tomorrow With his father dead and his mother in France, Patrick Leslie, Duke of Glenkirk, discovers the obligations of the estate and its people are now his alone. But during a day of hunting, a chance meeting ensures that he will not be alone much longer, for to obtain the deserted castle and lands adjoining his, Patrick must agree to take something else, as well--a bride. Flanna Brodie, heiress to Brae, is as vibrant and beautiful as the Scottish countryside, and just as wild. She wants no man--only her freedom. But the passions Patrick awakens in her run deeper than those of the flesh. The independent Flanna is determined to champion the royal Stuarts' cause, and restore Charles II to his throne despite her husband's objections. Patrick knows the dangers of such political intrigues; that the Stuarts have always brought misfortune to the Leslies of Glenkirk, and that a roguish king will ask far more of the naïve duchess than a simple vow of fealty--forcing Patrick and Flanna to choose between the threat of wounded pride, and the promise of a lasting love both secretly yearn for. . .

When John and Lisa receive a repeating pulse from another world at the mountaintop research center where they work, they realize that it is not simply false data; it is far too regular and enduring. Suddenly the long awaited possibility of extraterrestrial life seems imminently plausible. But who are these beings communicating from a far-off place, and what do they want? As John and Lisa learn to decipher the messages from this distant people, they begin to unravel the mystery of humankind, of life itself, and learn perhaps more than anyone is ready to admit. But when the pieces finally come together and an intergalactic visit looms on the horizon, no one knows what to expect. As they battle for the truth, John and Lisa must face two governments, a homicidal general, and their love for each other. Failure is not an option; the stakes are simply too high. But what they learn threatens the very notions of God, of evolution, of everything people of Earth have come to depend on.
