Transform Your Loss - Your Guide to Strength and HopeA self-help book that deals with major life transitions.
In a well-organized and engagingly written book, Ligia Houben offers a map to guide people through the grieving process. The personal anecdotes make it much more “real” than books that describe situations of loss in merely abstract terms, and the interactive exercises throughout encourage the reader to explore personal reactions to loss. The author conveys genuine empathy as she talks to readers about what they are feeling, and I found myself trusting her completely as a caring guide who wants to provide grieving people a positive approach to help them move ahead toward finding the strength and hope truly to transform their lives.

“Transform Your Loss is a great book. As an example, it brings out real like stories and examples of how people transformed their particular losses. As a radio talk show host I know how important it is to bring real life stories out if you want to connect with people. And that is what Ligia does so well in this book–she wholeheartedly connects with people showing them ways they can help themselves. I recommend this book to anyone wanting to understand and deal with any type of loss in their lives.”
