Review of "How To Talk To A Widower - Jonathan Tropper"
This book is one of the rare books that makes an elusive, emotional connection with the reader, Tropper uses the text with great effect, building an emotional relationship with the reader, as a reader i felt i was taken on an emotional voyage with so many highs and lows that felt more real than ever .I felt empathy with such an extent in was almost as if i was part of the grieving family. As the relationship of the widower and son is tested in such a turbulent period the reader feels compelled along with an almost personal want for the family to overcome such trajic events.After reading this book my thoughts and emotions regarding the story stayed at the forefront of my mind for several weeks. I would definatley recomend this book!!!

Three years later, Hailey has been dead for a year, and Doug, a widower at 29, just wants to drown himself in self-pity and Jack Daniels. But his family has other ideas...Russ is furious with Doug for not adopting him after Hailey died, and has fallen in with a bad crowd. Claire, Doug's irrepressible and pregnant twin sister, has just left her husband and moved in, uninvited, determined to turn his life around. Then there's Debbie, their younger sister, engaged to Doug's ex-best friend and maniacally determined to pull of the perfect wedding at any cost. Soon, Doug finds himself trying to forge a relationship with Russ, reconnecting with his own eccentric nuclear family, and reluctantly dipping his toes into the shark-infested waters of the second-time-around dating scene.
