Reviews of Profound Blessings by Catherine Capra-Leaf

Barbara Rubel reviewed on Jan. 17, 2013

If you have experienced a death of a spouse and are struggling with your grief, this book is for you. Capra-Leaf shares the emotional pain of saying goodbye to her terminally ill husband, his time on hospice, and her coping skills after his death. The story resonated in me; the pain of loss and the ability to find meaning in someone's death.

If you have loved someone and lost them then this is a story that must be read. It's funny, enlightening, sad and hits every loving cell in you heart.

Remarkably touching, intimate, and ultimately uplifting story of my cousin Mike's final journey, thoughtfully written by his adoring wife, Cathy. I cried, I laughed, and I learned valuable lessons in grace and coping. Most importantly, I was reminded to count my blessings, recognize new ones as they appear, and to cherish my loved ones always and best.

Remarkable writing about a traumatic, highly personal, tragic event in anyones life. From the opening paragraph until the final word, this is an amazing book of revelation and healing, that will hold you mesmerized, and more than likely require a few tissues. Thank you for sharing this personal journey, and letting those who seek it out, that they are not alone.

I absolutely love this book. I read it in one night, I couldn't stop reading until I finished it. I have started reading it a second time. I am so thankful that I was able to read it when I did, it helped me do some things that I really needed to do, to move forward, very inspiring story. Very well written. I 'felt' things right along with the author.
