"When T.J. Wray lost her 43-year-old brother, her grief was
deep and enduring and, she soon discovered, not fully acknowledged.
Despite the longevity of adult sibling relationships, surviving
siblings are often made to feel as if their grief is somehow unwarranted.
After all, when an adult sibling dies, he or she often leaves
behind parents, a spouse, and even children—all of whom
suffer a more socially recognized type of loss.
Based on the author's own experiences, as well as those of many
others, Surviving the Death of a Sibling helps adults who
have lost a brother or sister to realize that they are not alone
in their struggle. Just as important, it teaches them to understand
the unique stages of their grieving process, offering practical
and prescriptive advice for dealing with each stage."
